Cornwall: home of challenges and opportunities
Cornwall is a beautiful part of the UK that is attracting record tourist numbers. It is also one of the country’s least prosperous regions – our location brings both advantages and disadvantages. Now, we’re ready to capitalise on devolution in a post-Brexit world – and seize the opportunities ahead.
Corserv: a first of its kind
With a combined turnover forecast to be £200M for 2016/17, Corserv is the new company established to provide strategic direction for the existing commercial trading companies created by Cornwall Council. Although other local authorities have created trading companies, no one has done it to this extent and created such an ambitious place-making delivery arm.
The Corserv Group
The Corserv companies are: CORMAC Solutions Ltd, Cornwall Airport, Cornwall Housing, Cornwall Development Company and the Nottinghamshire joint venture transformation company, Via. We aim to bring other local authorities joint ventures into the fold as Corserv develops.
What can Corserv achieve?
Corserv is an essential part of the Council’s planning for the future. It will play a key role in aligning the approach of its companies with the aim of growing the economy of Cornwall – and benefiting the lives of residents. It will also ensure they are run efficiently and commercially to create social value.
