2014… TALL SHIPS

REGATTA The BID was of course, an official partner and as part of the Town Team, helped to plan, promote and manage the Tall Ships Regatta. We contributed funding for shoreside entertainment, visitor information and a survey to evaluate the success of the event. With over 200,000 visitors over four days, this was the biggest festival Falmouth has seen for many years.

Falmouth’s visitor economy...

THE PERCENTAGE OF VACANT UNITS IN FALMOUTH*

This represents a drop from 7% three years ago. This is the lowest for towns of comparable size in Cornwall and less than half the national average which is around 12%. While there will always be movement and fluctuations in any high street, especially given the challenging economic times, behind the scenes business to business marketing, national promotional campaigns, a substantial festivals programme and investment in the public realm by the Falmouth Town Team all helps to attract new and dynamic businesses to invest in Falmouth. *Correct at time of going to print

BUDGET Cornwall Council is faced with the challenge of having to make £196 million savings by 2018. This will undoubtedly have an impact not only on the management and promotion of Cornwall but also on the operational management of Cornwall’s towns and communities. Your BID is active in discussions with key local organisations such as Falmouth Town Council and Town Forum to continue to develop and strengthen Falmouth’s offer and maximise resources as effectively as possible.
