Property Summary

Development Site for 4 Apartments

Full Details

This is a great opportunity to acquire a development site in this increasingly sought-after and thriving coastal town. It has the benefit of full detailed planning permission (Ref. PA21/02403) for development of four apartments (2 x one bedroom and 2 x two bedroom) within a new two-storey building. The site currently comprises an area of redundant hard surfaced open ground, having previously been a playground, together with the adjoining sub-station which is leased to Western Power Distribution.

The site is conveniently located close to the central “level” area of Newlyn and is a short walk from the bustling harbour, shops, pubs, restaurants and cinema, and yet tucked away in a quieter side-street location.

Adjoining the site are old warehouses such as the Old Pilchard Works as this area was once the old industrial heart of Newlyn, but these buildings have mostly been redeveloped into residential properties over recent years.


Newlyn is a seaside town and fishing port in south-west Cornwall and is home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the United Kingdom. The industry is one of the most important in the county, contributing millions of pounds to the Cornish economy each year. There are several interesting old public houses and nice restaurants as well as an independent cinema. The famous Christmas lights are launched annually to the accompaniment of the Newlyn Male Voice Choir and followed by a firework display. The Newlyn Fish Festival is held on August Bank Holiday Monday each year, when stalls and cafés take over the quays for the day. There is a local primary school and the main town of Penzance is nearby, within a short walk along the scenic promenade.


Offers are invited for this freehold property in the region of £190,000.


Full detailed Planning Permission (Ref. PA21/02403) for development of a two-storey building with 2 x one bedroom units and 2 x two bedroom units was granted via appeal (Ref. APP/D0840/W/21/3279802) on 28th January 2022. Copies of the plans and planning permissions are held on file by the agents and are available upon request or via the Council’s website.


There is an electricity sub-station at the northern end of the site (leased to WPD) with poles on the proposed development site and overhead cables crossing the site. The owner has signed a wayleave consent (copy on file with the agents) with Western Power Distribution for the poles to be removed and the overhead and underground cables to be re-routed to avoid the proposed development. However, all interested parties should make and rely upon their own services enquiries for the property and any future development.


You may view the site at any reasonable time and at your own risk.
