Inspiring a renewed confidence and pride in the fishing town of Hayle

Catch up on the story of Hayle Harbour on BBC iPlayer. Find out how FCBStudios and Corinthian Developments are working together with the community, to transform it into an exciting and vibrant new coastal quarter.

Since the decline of the Cornish mining industries, this historic harbour has lain derelict despite a number of attempts to secure its future since the 1970s.

With placemaking, health, lifestyle and sustainability at its heart, this new coastal quarter will offer a variety of good quality housing. It will also provide waterside commercial spaces and a generous new public square, bringing year-round social and economic activity to the waterfront.

The development will provide improved facilities for local fishermen to help secure their future at Hayle.

Matt Williams, Associate and Architect who features on the BBC programme said: “It is so important for us to work together with the community on developments like this, and with fishing at the heart of this historic port, we have developed a good relationship with the fishermen to understand their needs and help secure the future of their traditional trade”.

Watch Cornwall: This Fishing Life on BBC iPlayer, which features a first look inside some of the Wharfhouses as they near completion.
