Porthleven The Atlantic Inn pub could be demolished and replaced with apartments


A popular Porthleven pub could be demolished and replaced with six apartments, a pre-planning app has revealed.

The application was submitted to Cornwall Council by The Atlantic Inn, on Peverell Terrace, Porthleven, which outlines the proposed development for the replacement of the existing on-site building with a custom six unit residential development.

The six units would consist of modern two-bedroom apartments.

The pre-planning request survey, prepared and submitted by Murray Planning Associates, on behalf of the owner, explains how the site currently includes a public house in the town of Porthleven.

The site is located on the north side of Peverell Terrace, which sits towards the southern end of town, in an elevated position above sea level. On a clear day, the site offers stunning views from The Lizard to ‘at Mousehole.

The application also states that the building has “little or no architectural value” and is already in a predominantly residential setting.

The proposed development includes the demolition of the existing public house and the redevelopment of the site with a development of six units, each offering two bedrooms.

The separate plot of land that currently provides parking for the public house would provide the parking needed for the residential development.

Access to the site would be to the west of the new building with a path that would lead to a common hall, which would also lead to a staircase to access the two upper floors.

The backyard will become a private amenity area for at least one of the new dwellings. The request also indicates that the scale of development is “incomparable” to that of the surrounding area despite being three storeys high.

The pub’s website states that it is a family-friendly place which was purchased by the current owners in 2002 after they moved to Porthleven.

The pre-planning request can be viewed on the Cornwall Council planning website. The application number is PA21 / 02723.
