Plan for regeneration of Hayle Harbour will see new homes and jobs for people in Cornwall

Powered by Google TranslateTranslate

Six hundred new homes and jobs could transform Hayle Harbour under a plan and funding approved by Cornwall Council’s Cabinet today (13 February).

Cornwall Council has developed the plan with the current land owners Sennybridge Hayle Ltd (SHL), following agreement from Cabinet in 2017 for the council to enter into negotiations to secure the future of the area.

Cabinet has today recommended to full Council that £15.760m is made available. This includes securing from Homes England a grant of £5.65m, to bring forward the building of roads and infrastructure to unlock the development of the Hilltop and Riviere Fields sites.

The plan is for the Council to buy the land at Riviere Fields to bring forward the development of quality new homes including new affordable homes for local people.

The Hilltop site and Quayside sites will, subject to necessary planning approvals, be developed by the private sector.

Cornwall Council’s portfolio holder for homes, Andrew Mitchell, said the plans will kick start the long awaited development, securing a new chapter and future for the town of Hayle.

Cllr Mitchell said: “Hayle is a key growth area and we expect redevelopment of the Harbour area to see 600 new homes, create more jobs and become a new destination for locals and visitors alike,”

A further report on the development approach will be brought to Cabinet for approval at a later date
