Penzance and Newlyn Area Framework Plan - a plan for the future

The Penzance and Newlyn Framework Plan involves looking at the area's potential for business and job opportunities, as well as considering how the town could evolve to meet the needs of residents and visitors.

The second phase of the consultation is now completed but you are still welcome to send your comments either by email to or by post , Economic Development (West), Cornwall Council, St Clare, Penzance, TR18 3QW.

The Plan, has been developed by AECOM Design + Planning on behalf of the Council.  The finalised proposals will provide members of Cornwall Council's Cabinet with an outline for how the plans could be delivered.

The options have been drawn up in response to detailed research about the economic and environmental status of the area and ongoing consultation with local businesses and community groups. The Council is asking everyone with an interest how Penzance and Newlyn might develop to provide for the future needs of its community.

These proposals will play a major part in transforming the Penzance and Newlyn economy over the next 15-20 years.

The exhibition set out a vision to reinforce Penzance as a creative maritime town.
Clear development proposals have been created for:

Newlyn and Wherrytown
The Barbican
The Harbour/Wharfside
St. John's Hall
St. Clare
