Greenbank Hotel planning to submit new application

There have recently been site surveys carried out around the Greenbank Hotel, and it is understood that the Greenbank Hotel are about to re-submit a planning application for development.

Visitors to this website will recall that the two 2008 planning applications by the Greenbank Hotel were withdrawn in March 2009. We can only speculate as to the reason for this withdrawal, however it is not hard to suspect that the applicant believed they would not be successful.

Whilst the 2008 plans proposed building on the waterfront area to the north of the hotel, it is believed that plans may now be being drawn up for works affecting both to the north and south of the hotel, to include some if not all of the existing park area open to the public between the Greenbank Hotel and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club.

The website is now online - the website address is http://www.save-our-foreshores.co.uk

There is also an email address for the website at this email address

You can also get to this blog from the website - there is a button and link to it.

The website is intended to be a living document, and we expect to add to it as we get more information and feedback.

If you know anyone who has a personal or business website who could put a link on their website to the Save our Foreshores website it would help enormously with the technical side of getting the website listed in the search engines.

Please have a look at the website and email us at contact@save-our-foreshores.co.uk if you have any comments. You can use the "Make your views known" page on the website to contact the various planning committees who have to decide on this proposal.

Please email the website address to everyone you know, urging them to look at the website, comment via email or by this blog, and write or email the planners. It is not just local residents that have a right to object, but anyone with an interest in protecting historic and/or natural environments, wherever they are.

Your letters and comments must be in by 17th December.

If anyone has a personal or business website that can link to our website it would be very helpful. We want this campaign to be as widely known as possible.

Stop the Greenbank development !

This is the opening of the Save our Foreshores blog, dedicated to bringing together those who care about the environment of Falmouth's historic waterfront, part of which is currently under threat from a major new apartment development by the Greenbank Hotel.
