Views sought for ferry plans


Views are being sought on the revised plans for the new Isles of Scilly Ferry Link terminal in Penzance.

Opinion has been sharply divided over proposals for the new development at South Quay, with original plans thrown out by the Council in December.

While the plans have now been tweaked, local action ground Friends of Penzance Harbour is still set against the application, claiming the scheme will ruin the historic sea front.

Cornwall Council’s Strategic Planning Committee is now seeking further views on the plans, before making a decision on March 8.

Should they again be rejected, it will increase the likelihood of Penzance losing the link altogether, with Falmouth more than willing to step into the breach.
