West Cornwall is asked to have its say over plans to improve the Isles of Scilly ferry link.

A public meeting is being held in Penzance later.

Officials have been awarded sixty-nine thousand pounds to hold a review.

It is taking place in St Johns Hall at 7.30 pm.

The Penzance Harbour Scheme has been launched by Penzance Town Council and the Penzance Seafront Forum who are working together in the newly created Penzance Harbour Scheme Management Board.

St Ives MP Andrew George said: "It's good to see Penzance working together towards the same end. I am pleased with the progress so far. There is a unity of purpose, the old divisions have been put aside and everyone is working together towards a single purpose."

"I am optimistic that the people of the Penzance area will come together during this consultation process and agree to proceed with a project which may end up being a compromise for the many who will approach this matter from different directions."
