Truro's Wayfinding Scheme was launched in summer 2017 and was planned and delivered by Truro BID.
There approximately forty signs throughout our City centre, a combination of large signs at the main welcome points and directional finger posts. This system helps our customers and visitors navigate to all parts of our City so it's a really positive wayfinding system to connect Truro.
The contemporary design focuses on the visitor experience. It reveals Truro's rich heritage with historical images and stories complemented by flashes of copper to echo the city's historical past as a Stannary town for trade in tin and copper.
The ‘Connected Truro’ project has been funded via sector 106 monies from the Waitrose development. It involved working with a partnership of business and council representatives to deliver, as well partnership working with the Truro Lions Club and Newham BID to create the Lemon Quay Plinth.
We now maintain the Wayfinding Scheme which includes washing the signs.
To help promote Truro's permanent indoor markets, we worked with Lemon Street Market, Pannier Market and Freedom Signs on a new design for one side of the existing wayfinding sign at Lemon Street. This was installed at the end of November 2022.
We also worked with Freedom Signs and Bert Biscoe (when he was the Mayor of Truro) to deliver the directional signage at Old Bridge Street Car Park in 2021
