(Updated 11:18am 30th January 2012)
Controversial plans to bring in super liners to Falmouth could take a step closer.
Test dredging of the harbour could begin in months.
That is despite fears about the environmental impact.
Dave Ellis from the Harbour Commissioners reckons 850 jobs hang on the scheme:
"The issue has always been that, because we're a special area of conservation, we have to take account of the environmental issues which is obviously important and necessary and that's meant that it's been quite a challenge to find a way through to meet the legitimate concerns"
"There are 850 additional jobs available for the community and an investment of £106.5 million, the majority of which is private money. That's a massive investment into, not just the local community, but the county and we can't afford to let that go"11:18am 30th January 2012
