A PUBLIC consultation is to be launched to ask people for their views on plans to build a new county-wide records store in Redruth.
Kresen Kernow is a development funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Council.
The planned new centre will house Cornwall Council’s archives and historic collections on the old brewery site in Redruth.
The formal consultation will begin in Redruth on Friday February 28 and Saturday March 1 when the team will take over the old Boots shop in Fore Street between 10am-3pm as part of the town’s St Piran’s festival.
Julian German, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Culture said: “We want the project to create a vibrant community resource and excellent research facilities so we want as many people as possible to tell us what they think.
“Your views will help us to make sure we meet the needs of everyone, across Cornwall and beyond, who might want to use it.”
The development is due for completion in 2017. Members of the project are now offering people the chance to share their views on the services, events and activities they want to see the development provide.
Following the initial event on 28 February and 1 March, the team will travel to Liskeard on 8 March.
There will then be a further ten consultation roadshows taking place in venues across Cornwall to enable people to learn more about the project, and share ideas and suggestions for the archive centre and its services.
