Detailed plans for the first phase of a major regeneration project at Hayle Harbour look set to be approved next week.

New photos have been released, giving a closer look at what a major development for Hayle might be like 

Included in the plans going to the committee are proposals for 151 new homes, 2,014 square metres of retail space, 595 square metres of business space, 343 square metres of storage space for fishermen and 305 parking spaces, 208 of which will be basement parking.

The development will include 12 buildings which will range from three to six storeys high apart from the Fisherman’s Quay building which will be single storey.

Residential properties will include 20 houses with the rest being apartments - 28 will be one bedroom, 33 three bedroom and the rest all two-bedroom properties.

There will also be extensive landscaping and open space included in the development which will use materials including timber, dark metal cladding, brick and concrete.

Planning officers have recommended that the plans are approved when they go to the committee next Thursday May 2nd.

In their report they state: "The application is the first phase of the development of North Quay which is an integral element of the regeneration of Hayle Harbour. The regeneration is seen as a key part of the wider regeneration of Hayle.

"Significant benefits, such as repair of the harbour walls, have already been achieved.

"This development is important in bringing activity to the area and will encourage more people to visit North Quay and enhance the attractiveness of Hayle.

"Existing businesses will be relocated into the new development and there will be space available for new businesses".

The report states that the applicants, Sennybridge (Hayle), have had extensive meetings and discussions with local organisations before submitting the plans.

As a result of the meetings some of the plans have been scaled back and the design altered to better reflect the area.

There had been concerns that the development could impact on the World Heritage Site but the planning officers say that the harm is considered to be “modest”.

The plans have been supported by Hayle Town Council and there have been no objections from the World Heritage Site team, Historic England and the Environment Agency.

Cornwall Council's strategic planning committee will meet at County Hall in Truro on Thursday May 2nd at 10am to consider the application.

The meeting will be webcast live on Cornwall Council's website.
