The Trust's objectives are Conservation, Regeneration and Education. These objectives are fulfilled through a number of projects; the creation of a heritage and education centre, running heritage and community based projects, supporting local heritage groups, creating quality yet affordable office space for SME's, working with schools and youth groups.
The Trust's main objectives is the regeneration of the Harvey's Foundry Site.Tthis work has been undertaken in a phased approach with phases 1 and 2 successfully completed we can now concentrate on the most historically significant buildings pulling the site together.
Phase 3 will create a heritage and education centre, managed 'grow-on workspace', expand the office provision and create Cornwall's first purpose-built archaeological research centre.
The Granary Barn and Engine House will be transformed into a heritage and education centre that explains the history of the site and Hayle, as well as providing flexible exhibition, performance and community space.
The Plantation Store and Pattern Shop will be used to expand the workshop and office provision.
The Pattern Shop and Old Cart Sheds will be combined as link building's that also provides managed workspace.
The Forge Site has the potential to open up the rest of the development; this large site will house the Archaeological Research Centre, and extended office provision.
