Wall insulation could be fitted at new office

Wall insulation could be fitted as part of the creation of a new council office in Cornwall.

The county council recognises that its current records facility in Truro is not fit for purpose and as a result will be building a replacement, with Redruth a potential location for it.

According to a report by, archives at the office date back to the 12th century and there are more than five miles of shelving inside it.

Redruth town and Cornwall councillor Mike Eddowes stated there are several Cornish towns bidding to be chosen for the new office.

"We need firm ideas as to where we see it being located and what availability of that site is," he said at a meeting of the town council earlier in the week.

This comes shortly after it was revealed that loft and cavity wall insulation is set to be fitted by constituents of the Highland Council after new funding of £385,000 was granted.
