Over 5000 people call for what was one of Cornwall's most famous beaches to be cleaned up.

Developers planning to regenerate Carlyon Bay have already been served with an enforcement notice.

It is over sea defences and debris from demolition work.

A petition has been handed in to get it cleared up.

Local Peter Browning says ten years down the line, enough is enough.

He said: "It is most damaging to the tourist industry, people find it very unattractive to visit the beach now with piles of debris everywhere, it has been like it for so long that many people would find it hard to remember how good it was in the olden days.

"It has been as it is now in its shocking state for 11 years, and we local people are fed up to the teeth with it, we are told by the summer the beach will be cleaned up, but we have been told that before."

Mr Jon Kenny, development director for Commercial Estates Group, said:  "We've made it clear that we want to start work on the Coliseum demolition and tidying up of the site in February 2015 so that it's clear in time for the summer and we remain committed to this timescale. We understand the frustrations of the petitioners but hope they'll be pleased with our plans to get moving with the scheme as quickly as possible and deliver what they're asking for.

"However, it's not just up to us - we're dependent on a number of planning and environmental approvals being in place before we can demolish any buildings - for example we need to have bat licences agreed with Natural England and we can't undertake any demolition once the bird nesting season has begun in early March.  Our plans are also subject to 'Reserved Matters' being approved by Cornwall Council.

"If we miss this window of opportunity, demolition of the Coliseum will be delayed by six months to the autumn.

"If everything goes ahead as planned, we'd like to open up the Crinnis Beach area further by providing more pop-up outlets like Sam's restaurant which opened earlier this year so we can create a vibrant amenity for the local community and holiday visitors to enjoy."
