Cornwall Council launched the third round of the Community Infrastructure Levy Fund last summer, to fund infrastructure projects that benefit children and young people. 

Now, after a vigorous and competitive application and selection process, the successful projects have been announced.

St Ives Town Council has received £80,000 for the Carbis Bay project, which aims to reimagine green and play spaces.

The funding will support stage one of the project, to enhance Richmond Park with planting and growing space, and play and gym equipment.
