The demise of shops in Truro is sad, but something that needs consideration for. People can buy things online, thus improving shopping facilities won’t matter because you cannot compete with the margins of online retailers. I would like to see Truro push forward a green agenda promoting more leisure/recreation space, including celebrating art and cultural diversity among the community. Allocating more space can be done by using existing brownfield areas that look shabby/ more maintained/ offer little benefit in their current state. Growing housing developments are fine but they do not increase the comfort of attending the center anymore. More trees, benches, library spaces, community givebacks/spaces are just a few ideas. The free market won’t provide this so the Council will have to step forth and encourage it themselves.
