The council expects phase 1 of the works to be substantially complete by the end of April 2005. Further phases of the project are planned as funds become available. Cornwall county council is responsible for the development and implementation of the North Close Home Zone scheme and has received a grant of £460,000 from the Challenge fund.
In submitting their bid for the scheme, Cornwall county council underestimated the scale of the project. It has therefore only been possible to implement the first phase of the project from the grant funding available. The county council are planning to implement further phases from other funding streams in future years.
