This is the first glimpse at revised plans for Porthleven Shipyard as Trevor Osborne continues in his bid to redevelop the site with an "Innovation Building."

Details are currently sparse about the differences between these new plans and a previous planning application refused by Cornwall Council in October.

However, people have been promised a full summary of the changes at a public meeting scheduled to take place early next month.

The so-called "Pre-application Community Engagement Forum" organised by Cornwall Council will take place on Monday, February 5 at Porthleven Public Hall, from 6pm.

It is designed to gauge the public's reaction to a new pre-application document put together by Mr Osborne's team, showing reworked designs for the building.

The previous design looked to house studios and units for around 70 people, an internet cafe, bus shelter, public toilets and showers. The plans also included the creation of a one-way route through the shipyard, with an entrance via the existing access point and a new exit onto Methleigh Bottoms.

The wording of the new proposed application is much the same, stating: "Proposed development of a new mixed use building, creation of a new vehicular access on to Methleigh Bottoms and amendments to existing shipyard vehicle access on to The Square."

In a letter to the council, project co-ordinator Jo Sharp, of the Porthleven Harbour & Dock Company, has now written: "We will provide drawings and images at the public meeting, along with a summary of the changes made since our previous application."

More details about the meeting are expected to be made available next week.

The meeting next month is designed to identify any issues ahead of a formal planning application being submitted and keep residents informed.

Those attended the meeting will be able to speak for a maximum of three minutes, although repetition of points already made by someone else is not allowed.

Written comments from the meeting will also be forwarded to the developers.

Mr Osborne has yet to appeal Cornwall Council's decision in October to refuse planning permission on his earlier application, although has still not ruled out the possibility.
