Video: Fat Apples Café


The latest video case study showing how Cornish businesses work with their local regulators has gone live.

Fat Apples Café near St Keverne on the Lizard, is one of six Cornish businesses supporting a project to shape the future of regulation in the Duchy, by appearing in a series of videos commissioned by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

Opened by Edward and Jacci Jourdan in November 2012, the café is now ranked 19th of 2,146 restaurants in Cornwall. In the video, the couple describe Cornwall Council senior planning officer Mark Broomhead as “is the reason we are here today”.

The couple explain how the premises had been on the market for around six years and had complicated planning issues that they could not have tackled on their own.

The Better Business for All project aims to take a business-led approach to improving regulation and show how working with regulators can save businesses time and money, improve competitiveness and help them grow.

Better Business for All is being managed by a steering group which includes small and large regulated businesses in Cornwall, the Federation of Small Businesses, Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, the LEP and representatives from a cross-section of regulatory services at Cornwall Council.

The films were made by Cornish media production company KernowPods.
