Proposals for the development were originally submitted in January 2014 with Debenhams announced as the anchor tenant in a 60,000 sq ft store.

The proposal was discussed at a meeting on Cornwall Council's Strategic Planning Committee in December 2014 and ultimately refused consent, despite a report recommending its approval.

The reasons given for the rejection were that it was cited on an area of potential flood risk and on green belt land. A site on land at the Hayle Rugby Football Club was listed as a more suitable option.

Plans have now been resubmitted by Simply Planning, on behalf of developer Cranford (Hayle) LLP, for a 151,000 sq ft mixed-use project including two restaurants/cafés and eight fashion-led shops. It also includes 530 car parking spaces.

A provision has been made for an enhanced March Lane Nature Reserve as part of the plans.

In response to the December 2014 ruling, the revised application includes floor space reduced by about 2,000 sq ft and one fewer shop unit as well as increased nature reserve provision. The development is now fully outside the flood zone.

An undertaking has also been provided not to begin work until a similar project on the rugby club site has started.

The developer said it believed that there was sufficient demand from retailer to justify both schemes going forward.

A design and access statement submitted by Simply Planning said: "The £35m development would vastly improve and enhance Hayle's retail offering.

"The proposal has received to date 95 per cent support from local residents who wish to see the scheme delivered for Hayle."
