BID and St Ives Town Deal are holding a pop-up Expo to showcase the nine projects funded by £19.9m from the UK government. The expo, which will be open to the public, will take place on Monday, April 17th, from 9.30am to 6pm in the ground floor of St Ives Library Building. It will display models, plans, and drawings of some of the key projects and allow members of the project teams, as well as local councillors, to discuss the exciting and ambitious plans with attendees.
The Town Deal supports nine transformational projects that are aimed at developing local skills, jobs and business, providing new and upgraded housing and community facilities as well as supporting low-carbon modes of transport to create a greener town centre.
The nine St Ives Town Deal projects include:
Enterprise Grants Fund

Old Vicarage Flats
St Ives LiveWest Low Carbon Retrofit
New and updated Rugby Club and Housing
St Ives Guildhall
St Ives Community Orchard Growth
Leach Pottery & St Ives Digital Trail
Low Carbon Transport
The Expo aims to provide an opportunity for the local community to find out more about the projects, highlight what has already been achieved, and talk about what lies ahead. Monday, April 17th, will also see the St Ives Annual Electors’ Town Meeting being held on the upper floor of the town’s library. The event, which will begin at 6pm, again providing local residents with the chance to meet Town Councillors and ask questions.
