Western Morning News 9 Mar 10


"A LAST-DITCH bid for controversial plans to breathe new life into Penzance harbour finally won backing last night.  Less than three months after the proposal was thrown into disarray by an outright rejection, Cornwall councillors performed a U-turn and gave the green light.  The vote after a tense meeting of the strategic planning committee prompted sighs of relief from those who said that common sense had at last prevailed".

The news article went on to comment:


………."Chamber of commerce chairman Mike Waters said he was "absolutely delighted". "We have fought hard behind the scenes and we got a lot of public and business support," he said".


…….."The momentum of public support for the scheme only appeared to gather after the last planning meeting in December".


………."Councillor Andrew Wallis was one of a number to note the sea change and swap his vote to a "yes".


………."At County Hall yesterday, those in favour were in the majority in the public gallery, with only a handful of anti-option A demonstrators in evidence".
