The bustling Cathedral City of Truro is the centre for administration, commerce and tourism for the County of Cornwall. Truro, called after Tri-veru meaning three rivers which includes the Rivers Kenwyn and Allen, has developed close to the Truro River and with good road and rail links is within easy reach of almost every part of Cornwall.
Truro is an historic Market Town full of richness and diversity. The Wednesday Livestock Market is a centre for the farming community and has modern, purposebuilt premises on the edge of Truro. Down in the centre of town, the Pannier Market is the largest of Truro’s indoor markets and offers a huge range of goods, with something of interest for every shopper.
Just outside on Lemon Quay, Truro Farmer’s Market trades every Wednesday and Saturday, offering fresh, quality produce, direct from local producers to the public. On Wednesdays, the farmers are joined by other local traders who together form the Wednesday Open Air Market.
On many Saturdays there are Art, Craft, Food and Drink Fairs held in marquees on Lemon Quay, organised by Deborah Martyn Events. Just around the corner is Lemon Street Market, now stunningly refurbished, where a variety of specialist shops and cafes can be found.
Truro City Council and Kenwyn Parish Council have now completed the Neighbourhood Plan. The next part of the formal process is for it to be independently examined by a suitably qualified and experienced person chosen by an organisation called NPIERS (Neighbourhood Planning Independent Examiner Referral Service). Based on the report we receive we will consider whether to make any amendments to the Plan before asking Cornwall Council to arrange a referendum for all voters in the Plan area, i.e. Truro and Kenwyn parishes. We hope that the referendum will be successful and the document will become a strategic planning document is the assessment of future planning applications.
