THOUSANDS of people and businesses have joined a new online campaign for a major harbour development in Penzance.

A group called A Future For Penzance, launched on social networking website Facebook last week, has attracted more than 3,000 'fans' in a week.

Supporters favour the development of a combined freight and passenger terminal, known as Option A, at Battery Rocks Beach, on Penzance seafront.


Ian Cragg, Tim Dwelly and others have put up "A Future for Penzance" as a Facebook campaign in support of Option A.  It is proving a highly effective method of engaging people in the debate over investment in the harbour and Option A.  Clearly some people who have signed up are objectors making thier case but read the posts yourself to form your own opinion of the level support.  As with the majority of the working age population of Penzance, the vast majority just want the Council to get on with it and do not understand what all the fuss is about.
