Info has just been circulated to business owners, residents and others by Devon & Cornwall Police and Cornwall Council. I have edited it to reflect what might be of most use to visitors planning to arrive/stay from 27 May onwards.
There are likely to be disruptions, restrictions and diversions before, during and after the event which is taking place between 11-13 June. G7 will host world leaders, support teams and media representatives in St Ives, with Falmouth and Newquay Airport also providing support venues for the event.
Disruption and preparation will include the installation of security fences around key venues; road, rail, aviation, maritime and footpath closures and restrictions and some diversions to ensure the safety and security of the event for residents and delegates.
To manage traffic around the venues and keep residents safe, a number of measures will be put in place, including:
In the St Ives and Carbis Bay area the A3074 (St Ives Road) will be closed to all traffic from 9am on 10 June until 11.59pm on 13 June. Security barriers and fencing will be installed from the 4 June and there will be some initial short-term disruption, but full closure is not planned until 0900 on 10 June. The Old Coach Road via Halsetown will be used to provide access to St Ives and delays are expected.
In St Ives local amenities will largely remain open, and all beaches other than Carbis Bay will be accessible.
St Ives town centre and harbour will be open. In Carbis Bay, the section of the South West Coast Path which runs through the Carbis Bay Hotel will be closed with a temporary diversion in place.
In Falmouth, where the Maritime Museum at Event Square will be used as the media centre for the G7 Summit, both Grove Place and Maritime car parks will be closed between 27 May and 19 June.
Campbeltown Way will be closed to traffic between 27 May and 19 June. The car park in Church Street will be closed for pay and display 10 to 13 June
Around Cornwall Airport Newquay - there will be a number of road closures and parking restriction orders in place around the airport for the duration of the event, beginning at 6pm on 9 June, and ending on 11.59pm on 13 June.
Some restricted areas in St Ives and Falmouth will require residents and workers to provide two forms of current identification linked to their home or business address in order to gain access in vehicles to those homes or businesses.
Pedestrian access will be restricted in areas of the immediate vicinity of key areas and people will be subject to security checks. Only residents will be allowed access to these areas.
Further security arrangements are still being finalised, but details will be shared as soon as possible.
See you on the other side!
