Cornwall should be able to make more money from its coastline and countryside.

That is according to the new man in charge of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Environment Partnership.

Alun Knight reckons we should be able balance new jobs and development with protecting our most beautiful places.

He said: "People need jobs, people need money and we need the natural environment. Finding that perfect mid point is difficult and there is contested space. So the role of an independent chairman is to help find that space, so yes it will be difficult at times but that's what the role is about.

"There is money to be found in our coastline, there is money to be found in our beautiful natural environment. So I think if we get this right, there is a great prosperous future for Cornwall by looking after and enhancing our natural environment."

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly were chosen as one of the country's first Local Nature Partnerships by the Government in 2012.  The aim of the new partnerships is to help local areas to manage the natural environment for the benefit of nature, people and the economy.

Julian German, Chair of the Environment Partnership Initiation Board and Selection Panel said, "Alan brings a wealth of experience in the corporate world; and has played a major role in persuading people that good business is green business.  

"Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are committed to making sure that the future has a healthy environment and economy.  Alan's knowledge of how to put sustainability principles into practise is just what we need to ensure that the beautiful and sensitive environment of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly which we all love, can support our  communities" .

Edwina Hannaford, Cornwall Council's portfolio holder for Environment, Heritage and Planning, said: "Cornwall's natural environment is very important, not only for food production and contributing to our residents and visitors' health and wellbeing but also as a strong economic driver.

"Along with the Health and Well Being Board and the Local Enterprise Partnership, I see the formation of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Environment Partnership adding to a sustainable Cornwall."
