More than £30m is being spent transforming 19 acres of Cornish mining landscape in Pool near Camborne.

The World Heritage Site will incorporate art galleries, botanical gardens, a farmer's market, sustainable housing, cycle trails, shops and an adventure playground.

The developers want BBC Radio Cornwall listeners to come up with imaginative names for the roads leading from Dudnance Lane and Trevenson Road to Robinson's Shaft.

Listeners have until the end of the month to enter the competition.

Ideas have started flooding in, which include Mineral Way, remembering the area's mining heritage.

Another suggestion was Richard Trevithick Way, in tribute to Camborne's famous son.

Proper Job Way and Me 'Ansome Avenue also popped up as possible names.

Scott James, the Programme Director at Heartlands, said: "About six years we had a blank canvas so we asked what the local community wanted to see.

"With the local people we have helped to design this. We've got parks, gardens, a world heritage site museum, workspace, and theatre space.

The Heartlands Project is transforming the physical and built environment in Pool to create a thriving community hub for local residents and visitors.

Those behind the project say it will act as a catalyst for the wider regeneration of Pool, creating fresh opportunities for the whole community.

The organisers hope the development will be completed by December.

Road name suggestions should be sent to: or by post to: BBC Radio Cornwall, Phoenix Wharf Truro TR1 1UA.

The closing date is the end of July.
