George Eustice welcomes 2% increase in funding for Cornwall Council

George Eustice has welcomed an increase in funding for Cornwall Council. Core spending power will rise by £8.5M, including an adult social care support grant of £1.7M.

Cornwall is also set to receive additional money from the Rural Services Delivery Grant, which has been increased to the highest level it has ever been. Further good news is the announcement of £5.7M for Hayle Harbour North Quay’s redevelopment.

George said: “I am very pleased with today’s announcements. I am particularly encouraged that we are seeing an increase in support for adult social care, and that Hayle Harbour North Quay’s redevelopment has received such a boost. I am glad that my colleagues and I have been able to secure this extra money for Cornwall Council”.
