A group comprising the six Hayle District Councillors and several officers from Penwith District Council (PDC) had been formed to consider issues arising from the harbour development. This was known as the Hayle Harbour Steering Group.
It has now been recognised that a group responsible for coordinating all regeneration in Hayle, both in and out of the harbour, should be formed.
The group is called the Hayle Area Plan Partnership
Management Team and succeeds the Hayle Regeneration Management Group (HRMG) and the, now disbanded, Hayle Harbour Steering Group.
I think this is an important step towards regenerating Hayle. Having a single body responsible for supporting, coordinating and reviewing the wide variety of regeneration activities in the town will ensure better use of resources and a more coordinated outcome. After the first meeting, I am confident that this will result in concrete action and is not just another talking shop. Once the minutes are published and further information from the first meeting is available to the public, I will give more details here.
Watch this space.

07 Apr 2006
Some of the items covered in the meeting included:
Creation of an Action Plan for Hayle . This rather innocuous title hides a very important concept. One of the most important documents governing local planning decisions is the Local Plan. This plan is agreed periodically and is very hard to change between update cycles We are in a transition phase from the old system to Local Development Frameworks which would require a revision to the existing Local Plan. An Action Plan, which requires the approval of the Secretary of State, would enable us to do a bottom up review of land use planning throughout Hayle and would provide the essential support to the MCTi process to ensure its long term success.
Discussion of the harbour and the need for ING to make a presentation to Hayle Town Council so that issues could be raised prior to the submission of a full planning application.
Discussion of a new Bowling Green for Hayle.
