Scheme in Hayle will include 500 homes, cinema and art gallery

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has unveiled plans for a 377-home scheme in the Cornish coastal town of Hayle, near St Ives.

The scheme will be the second phase of the architect’s £200m masterplan for the historic town on the county’s northern coast.

The town’s port and wider region was made a Unesco World Heritage site in 2006 because of its role in the county’s tin mining history.

The original masterplan aimed to add 160 homes in its second phase. But these proposals have now more than doubled its size, bringing the total number of homes across both phases to over 500.

Phase one, which was given the go-ahead last summer and started construction earlier this year, consists of 140 homes, 2,000m2 of waterfront retail space and 600m2 of office space.

The second phase will add a cinema and art gallery to the north side of the town’s harbour.

A water sports centre, a boutique hotel, a footbridge, new quayside toilets and showers will also be added, as well as a restoration of a grade II-listed stable.
