Resident and business information

Devon & Cornwall Police have released information leaflets to inform local people of route closures and diversions. Maps of Carbis Bay and St Ives, St Mawgan and Falmouth are available on this website.

Please encourage your friends and family to sign up for the free Devon and Cornwall Alert service, provided by the police. We will publish live updates and alerts throughout the event and it is the best way to stay informed by text, voicemail or email.

The South West Coast Path in Carbis Bay will be diverted for the duration of the event for security reasons.
