CABE on Hayle Harbour

The Government’s ‘planning’ advisor CABE (Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment), issued their thoughts on the Hayle Harbour develoment plans in a report which raises concerns both for those who are broadly in favour and those who oppose the plans in principle.

For example: CABE’s strongly worded document includes phrases such as: “we do not believe that the impact of the proposals [on the impact to the town infrastructure] has been considered sufficiently in the context of Hayle as a whole”

In particular, CABE’s conclusion (below) appears to highlight serious concerns about the impact to the town’s future inhabitants.

Although we support the principles of development on North Quay, because of our serious reservations about the design of Riviere Fields, South Quay and East Quay, we do not support the current outline application. We feel that a separate masterplan application for North Quay alone, which addresses the comments made by CABE, should be submitted and approved before any detailed applications, other than that for the Wave Hub infrastructure, come forward.
