Cornwall investment wins local support

I’ve been working with the HCA and Cornwall Council over the last week to plan the announcement of an investment in Troon, near Camborne.

We announced yesterday that the agency is to invest up to £900,000 in vital work to protect housing from subsidence caused by a derelict mine in the village.

The investment will fund safety engineering work to stabilise 4 ha of ground affecting around 50 homes, and marks a milestone in a long-running project to support residents who have been affected by the problems.

It is hoped that the work will stabilise the ground underneath the homes and halt a decline in property values, which are thought to have fallen as a result of the problems.

The agency has been praised by councillors and local MP (and David Cameron’s former spokesman) George Eustice. I hope the work makes a difference to the village and the lives of the people living there.
