IMAGES of a potential new look for The Strand in Newlyn have been released by the development company which led a consultation on proposals.

Ideas for the area that runs alongside the port's harbour include new offices, workshops, retail space and a museum.

The proposals were led by the Cornwall Development Company using money from the European Regional Development Fund.

Newlyn Harbour Commission chairman Gilbert McCabe said: "We have been supported by good work from a strong professional team including architects Poynton Bradbury Wynter Cole Ltd, transport experts Hyder Consulting and property cost advisers EC Harris.

"All the interest evidenced by the local community through this framework has encouraged local landowners to bring forward proposals for fresh investment, and especially new workspace in Newlyn."

The plans will be sent to Cornwall Council for approval as a material consideration in determining planning applications.

    Another generous portion of pie in the sky from the Guys n Gals at CDC desperate to keep the home fires burning and do their bit to prevent malnutrition among consultants. If built where will the tenants come from given the rent levels that will be necessary?

    "All the interest evidenced by the local community through this framework has encouraged local landowners to bring forward proposals for fresh investment, and especially new workspace in Newlyn." I fail to see how "the local community", from either the fishing or residential sectors, were supposed to have "evidenced" the workshops of this superficial proposal. The "local landowners" consisted of the Newlyn Harbour Commissioners and one family that owned three properties in one half of The Strand, it excluded any of The Strand's fishing industry tenants and omitted to invite the landowners from the other half of The Strand, right opposite the fish market. If the notes within the papers presented to the public are to be believed there were more attendees from the consultants and Harbour Commissioners at the workshops than there were members of the "local community". It is hardly surprising that the result is a vacuous, unimaginative proposal that has little support or interest from the community.
