Helston drive-through pasty plans on tomorrow's menu

Falmouth Packet: Helston drive-through pasty plans on tomorrow's menu Helston drive-through pasty plans on tomorrow's menu

A bid to turn the former Hilltop Garage into a drive-through takeaway for pasties will be discussed by Helston councillors tomorrow (Thursday).

The town council’s planning committee will talk over plans by Helston Pasty Company Ltd for the garage at the top of Sithney Common Hill, in a meeting at the Guildhall from 6.15pm.

A change of use from a motor vehicle sale and repair garage has been applied for, so the company can manufacture Cornish pasties and sell them as takeaway food.

The pasties produced there would also be sold in shops around Cornwall and further afield.

In a supporting document from architects Laurence Associates it is stated: “Given the extent of the existing building and a prominent nature of the site, the applicants have aspirations that the site should become a showcase for the display and sale of Cornish produce.

"In this regard the applications believe that the site could become a tourist attraction in its own right.”

On Cornwall Council’s website there are ten objections from members of the public, with concerns over safety on an “excessively busy junction” and the effect on independent pasty traders within Helston town centre. Potential problems with odours and rubbish were also raised.

However, Laurence Associates claimed that since the proposal first became public it had received “significant local support.”

Another ambitious scheme by entrepreneurs,follow
ing on from the Helston Spingo Brewery plans.

Probably better than just a replacement car-sales lot.

If,by chance, it gets the go-ahead,and it proves difficult with traffic,then the junction/road can be adapted to suit ?

If their pasties look like the one in that picture, I don't think Horse and Jockey have anything to worry about.

Will the pink cadillac of annoying celebs be stopping off there for a pasty?

Actually, I wanted to comment on that story but couldn't so am squeezing it in here!

They're such an irritating gaggle, I was hoping their sat-nav might play up, taking them in the wrong direction from Lands End...
