a)  Hayle Harbour Update

It was reported that Simon Wright had rung the clerk and had agreed he would attend an informal meeting with the town council on 10 January. He was having a meeting with the architect on 7 January to look at how the plans could be amended to take into account some of the comments by the town council and particularly ICOMOS, whose report was a direct response to the developer and not a public document. He had added that the comments from both were not the same.

It was reported that the Riviere Fields issue would be discussed by Cornwall Council (CC)’s Cabinet on 13 February. Councillor Pollard had wanted to make the point that at the start discussions had revolved around the economic development of the harbour for the wider benefit of Hayle, but latterly had seemed to focus only on the housing development aspect.

The opinion was expressed that the current owner/s would not have the financial capacity to do the necessary work at the harbour until the residential developments had been completed and sold. Also, it was noted that at that stage it was not clear if the changes he would make to the plans would require a new planning application or not. Mr Wright had agreed that he would attend any meeting HTC invited him to. He had also reported that he was working with Carnsew Meadow residents and the RSPB to rectify the Carnsew Pool footpath issue.
