Cornwall Life - - THIS MONTH -

A for­mer Min­istry of De­fence (MoD) camp has been granted ap­proval for res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial de­vel­op­ment, af­ter ly­ing va­cant for al­most a decade.

Corn­wall Coun­cil has granted plan­ning per­mis­sion for the de­vel­op­ment of up to 134 homes, in­clud­ing 20 per cent af­ford­able hous­ing, 1,500sqm of com­mer­cial build­ings and around three hectares of public open space at the site ad­ja­cent to Hoblyn’s Cove near Holy­well Bay.

Pen­hale Camp was once used as a 24-hour train­ing and re­cu­per­a­tion fa­cil­ity for up to 700 sol­diers at a time.

The aban­doned Nis­sen huts, con­crete-block huts and an­cil­lary build­ings will be re­moved to make way for the new de­vel­op­ment.
