Take off for Cornwall heliport

Penzance heliport

A new heliport is to be built on the outskirts of Penzance, Cornwall, after the local authority gave full planning permission.

Consultant WYG worked up the planning application on behalf of Cornwall Council, which will re-instate the helicopter service to the Isles of Scilly, which was scrapped in 2012.

WYG’s work covered flood risk and drainage, ground conditions and the environmental impact assessment.

The scheme has been designed with project architects Llewellyn Harker. It is expected to open next year.
