Carlyon Bay beaches June 2011 after unauthorised shuttering removed

Two thirds of the Carlyon Bay beaches would be covered in concrete  

Carlyon Bay Watch has consistently argued for an appropriate use to be found for the old Cornwall Coliseum site on Crinnis, the only part of the beaches previously developed.  But building over 500 dwellings, extending over Shorthorn as well, is not appropriate.  The developers say they have altered their plans but they have not reduced the size of this massive project which will double the number of dwellings in the Carlyon Bay area.

We submitted a formal document to Cornwall Council's planners objecting to this scheme, examining the proposals in detail. The full document is too big for us to publish here but we have provided links to as much as we can.   You may find some fascinating bits of information in our submission which do not appear in the developer's application!
