Truro used to be a busy, thriving city centre. More recently it has become devoid of pleasant / attractive areas to relax and people stay away. Meanwhile Falmouth is buzzing with people and independent shops. Truro needs more flowers, plants and trees with places to sit to ‘tree bathe’. We could make Boscawen Street the traffic free ‘piazza’ with street furniture, entertainment, outdoor food sellers and covered seating, maybe even a band stand. Or make more of Lemon Quay in the same way. We should make more of the river estuary and put a lock gate to keep the water level up, add cafes and restaurants, small boats and water features, and a free electric road train / tram / bus circuit for people to hop on – hop off connecting all the parts of the city. The Park and rides are great – we need two more for north and south Truro approaches Themed events like Edwardian days / carnivals, fetes, treasure hunts, late night shopping… More greenery. More colour. More people = More atmosphere.
