The G7 Summit will bring unavoidable disruptions to the St Ives area. Measures are being put in place to ensure the safety and security of the event for both residents and the delegates. Alongside our partners, we will endeavour to ensure that disruption to local communities is minimised as far as possible.
To keep residents safe, the following security measures will be put in place, including:
1. 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.
2. 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 9am on 10 June. The Old Coach Road via Halsetown will be used to provide access to St Ives and delays are expected.
3. In St Ives local amenities will largely remain open, and all beaches other than Carbis Bay will be accessible.
4. St Ives town centre and harbour will be open.
5. 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.
6. Some restricted areas in St Ives will require residents and business 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. These might be a council tax bill, utility bill, bank statement (dated within last three months) or driving licence.
7. Any delivery driver or service provider seeking entry to restricted areas will need to provide proof of manifest / order confirmation to the address that they are seeking to access along with their personal company ID. The same principle in terms of suitable documentation and ID will need to be presented by any care workers or similar (e.g. charity volunteers who are providing support to residents within the community).
8. 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.
9. Airspace restrictions will be in place from 7 to 13 June.
