With thanks to our sponsors, partners and individuals.
The Austell Project, led by St Austell Bay Economic Forum (SABEF) aims to re:imagine St Austell and its hinterland as a more vibrant place to live, work and play – inspired by nature and driven by creativity.
The ambitious and varied project initiatives all centre around two key themes, deep rooted within the fabric of St Austell’s heritage – horticulture (Austell Green/ The Garden Route) and clay (Austell Create/ The Whitegold Project).
The Austell Project seeks to enhance the landscape, transform public spaces, stimulate economic growth and promote pride in the local community. A new vision for St Austell’s cultural future. To learn more about our project click here.
