Local residents are celebrating with Ocean this week, following the announcement that funding has been awarded to look into regeneration and re-development in the heart of the community.
Future options for the 8 blocks of three storey flats at Polgrean Place and the surrounding landscape will be explored, and people living in the area can expect to be asked for their views and be kept in close contact with updates on what will be a two year research project.*
Ocean’s Chief Executive, Mark Gardner, explained further:
“Ocean’s top priority is quality homes and living space for its residents and that is why we worked hard to secure this government funding, to help accelerate future plans for the Polgrean and St Blazey area.
Researching regeneration options will build upon the multi-million pound Promises Programme which Ocean has undertaken over the past 16 years, which has seen glazing, roofing and insulation programmes improve the standard of thousands of Cornish homes.”
“Our teams have been working closely on the local Neighbourhood Plan, to retain this area as a central hub to over 6,500 people living in the Par and St Blazey area. Ocean has a strong track record of working with local partners to deliver community improvements and we look forward to once again collaborating with organisations such as Cornwall Council, so that these exploratory works can tie in with other key plans for the area, such as the STARR flood alleviation project.”
Ocean is keen to hear ideas and input on future plans for the area and will shortly begin a full programme of consultation.
