The project is a unique mixed use development on the beach at Carlyon Bay, St Austell, situated between the foot of the cliffs and the sea. It comprises 511 dwellings and 10,000m2 of commercial, sports and leisure facilities as a fully managed site. Over 1km of new sea defences and re-training of the river are required to protect the site from coastal and river flooding. The access road down the cliff is upgraded and parts of the cliff require stabilisation works.

The scheme was commenced in 2003 and was partially built out, before being halted by planning difficulties. After a Public Inquiry, a new scheme was designed for which consent was granted in 2011.

Key Features

  • Complex access arrangements, including off-site improvements, widening and stabilising access road down cliff. Challenges of designing roads and hierarchy to be pedestrian friendly, with low visual impact, whilst enabling construction and maintenance plant, including low loaders to access the beach and sea defences for future maintenance works.
  • Extensive Autotrack runs carried out for emergency vehicle access to all critical areas and to ensure under-croft car parking layout is not compromised by the building structure.
  • Full detailed design of previous scheme inclusive of perimeter and internal roads and footpaths, incorporating a variety of finishes and inset lighting.
