StARR

The St Austell Bay Resilient Regeneration Project

The St Austell Bay Resilient Regeneration Project (StaRR) is a £20M flood alleviation and regeneration scheme led by Cornwall County Council.

Funding is being sought for this innovative scheme aiming to work across the whole of the Par and Sandy River Catchments to reduce flood risk to communities living and working in the St Austell Bay area particularly the people of Par and St Blazey. Works will be delivered in partnership between Cornwall County Council, The Environment Agency & Westcountry Rivers Trust, South West Water, the University of Exeter & Cornwall Development Company. Planned implementation is 2017-2020.

Westcountry Rivers Trust’s role within the project is to work with local communities in the upper catchment to develop and deliver Natural Flood Management solutions.
