Plans have gone in to develop a new mini business park in Helston.

This would be made up of six units in one long building on the gravelled area next to the Cornish Oven in Clodgey Lane.

It would be placed to the far right of the site, as looked at from the road, adjacent to the boundary with the Tesco filling station.

Plans submitted by David Evans indicate that no specific businesses are currently confirmed for the units, which are expected to be used by non-food related shops and for business use.

However, the application to Cornwall Council does add that Mr Evans has received interest from a company looking for new‐build premises, resulting in one of the units being designed to accommodate two-storey office accommodation.

Land next to the Cornish Oven and Tesco Helston would be developed

The eight car parking spaces for Cornish Oven will be kept.

The plans revisit an idea from three years ago, when signs went up promoting the Turnpike Trading Post – at the time proposed as an area of 17 business units, on land next to ATS Euromaster.

This followed a pre-application enquiry from the previous year, at which a Cornwall Council planning officer suggested that such a development – at the time for floor space measuring 775 metres squared – would be acceptable, subject to a few matters being addressed.

The current application states: “This advice has been considered during the development of the current proposals; however, the comments returned were for a substantially larger scheme, twice the additional floor space of the current plan.”

This application is for a building with floor space half that size, at 384 metres squared.

Helston Town Council’s planning committee is due to consider the plans when it meets at the Guildhall this Thursday, from 6.15pm.
