Cornish people want European Objective One funds to be spent on education and improved road links, rather than tourism, culture or the arts, according to the preliminary results of a survey.
Cornwall CC says one priority is for the stretch of the A30 in the county to be made a dual carriageway, while residents do not want any more wind farms or supermarkets.
The council sent leaflets to all 220,000 households in the county to ask what the funds should be spent on. The deadline for replies is 31 December, and 14,000 had been received at the end of last week.
Cornwall is likely to obtain Objective One status from the European Structural Fund because GDP per head is less than 75% of the European Union average. A definite decision will not be made before March 1999.
