What will the future of Penzance and Newlyn look like? You decide!


Staff member
This is an email that has been passed on to me today from fellow member Bilge Rat. From what he wrote to me it may seem like not much is on offer if you are looking for choice (sort of here it is like it or lump it sort of thing). In any case I think it is important for residents and businesses to go along and have a look for them selves and report back their findings. Any investment in Penzance and Newlyn is a good thing... as long as it is done tastefully and with the backing of the majority of residents and businesses who live here and trade here.

Dear Consultee,

Cornwall Council invites you to St John’s Hall in Penzance on Tuesday 20th July to find out how the proposals for regenerating Penzance and Newlyn are developing. As part of a six week period of public consultation on the latest stage of the Penzance and Newlyn Framework Plan, a staffed exhibition will be available from 1.00pm with short presentations taking place at 4.00pm and again at 7.30pm.

Cornwall Council has been working with the consultancy firm AECOM Design + Planning, to develop the Framework Plan which has evolved through workshop meetings held with consultees at the Queens Hotel in March, a public exhibition during May as well as more detailed consultation meetings with businesses and other local stakeholder organisations.

The Framework Plan is now entering a crucial phase where more specific regeneration concepts that have arisen from the consultation activity are now available and feedback is required from local residents and businesses.

We hope you are able to attend at some point on the 20th as your feedback is needed to help the project move forward. Please feel free to pass on this invitation to friends and colleagues because we would like as many people as possible to have their say.

For more information about the event, where else you can see the exhibition or for more details about this work, please call Linda Davies on 01736 336844 or email linda.davies@cornwall.gov.uk.

Yours faithfully

Oliver Cranfield
