Project: Proposed mixed use development  

South Quay, Hayle, Cornwall

Client: ING Real Estate

Aspect Landscape Planning Ltd were appointed by ING to prepare hard and soft landscape proposals for a hybrid application for the South Quay and Foundry Yard site for a retail-led mixed use development.

The application site on South Quay falls within the Hayle Harbour townscape area in the Cornwall and Scilly Urban Survey, along with Penpol and Foundry townscape areas. Within the wider landscape beyond these identified areas in the Urban Survey, Lelant Towans lies to the western side of the estuary, and West Hayle Valley to the southwest covering the southern estuary and land around. Hayle Towans lies to the north of the harbour.

The development seeks to provide a foodstore and unit shops, associated car parking, new vehicular access and a raised walkway between the store and the town centre and include improvements to the Quayside and the raising of the site level to accommodate climate change.

The proposed development site lies within one of ten Areas which make up the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Hayle Harbour falls within the Port of Hayle site.
