Headlands Hotel Planning Application

Monday, September 2, 2013

The Headlands Hotel planning application has been submitted and is causing significant controversy in the local area.

If you’ve been to Port Isaac or Port Gaverne recently, you may have noticed a derelict white building on the headland. This is the Headlands Hotel, once a great Victorian establishment, constructed at a time when the new railway would bring visitors to the area. But now it lies abandoned, dilapidated and in desperate need of attention.

After 22 years, the previous owners decided to retire and put the hotel on the market for some £2.5 million. Now an application has been submitted to demolish the existing building and erect a two storey, 20 bedroom hotel housed across three separate buildings. The existing car park would be reused, and there would be an additional drive to the lower part of the building.

This has caused controversy in the village, as many locals believe it would change the feel of Port Gaverne. People are particularly concerned that the proposed plans would expand the hotel’s footprint by a considerable margin. Furthermore the modern architecture is out of keeping with the traditional character of North Cornwall.
