Truro Town Deal calls for new members to join our board of volunteers

Calling for new members to join our board of volunteers.

Are you looking for an opportunity to drive positive change for the community of Truro and help build the Truro of tomorrow?

The Truro Town Deal Board is looking for new members to join them at the exciting time of the City’s regeneration programme delivery which is made possible thanks to the Government’s Town Deal Fund.

In June 2021, Truro was awarded £23.6 million from the Government’s £3.6 billion Towns Fund to bring a step-change in how we live, work and enjoy Truro. This money will help us to future proof Truro whilst celebrating its unique character. Seven projects, set to transform our city and local economy, are now entering their delivery phase. Read more about the seven projects funded by the Town Deal here.

We are calling for leaders or developing leaders with the skills, confidence and the authority to bring their voice to the table in order to help shape and deliver the Town Investment Plan for Truro and support the City’s regeneration.
