New fence a nightmare for drivers in Newquay

Instead of drivers being able to see what parking spaces are available in Newquay, the information they need is now covered up.

It's all thanks to a newly installed fence that is making the already challenging task of parking even more difficult.

The fence at Mount Wise in the town is baffling everyone.

Newquay residents are celebrating after a developer withdrew plans to build apartments on a clifftop.

The proposal to convert Trebarwith Hotel into houses and a car park had met serious opposition from the local residents association.

They claimed the cliffs are unstable and rock falls would put lives at risk.

The owner of the former Trebarwith Hotel had wanted to demolish the existing building and construct nine townhouses, nine apartments, a detached bungalow and a car park.

However after receiving advice from Cornwall Council, they decided to withdraw their application and consider alternative options.

Newquay Town Council had also objected to the proposals. They said they had concerns over the proximity of some of the buildings to the cliff edge.

Newquay Airport is warning passengers to allow extra time if they are heading to the airport. It's due to the Bloodhound SSC test runs taking place on the runway on the 26, 28 and 30 October which will mean extra traffic in the area.

Staff say that they are operating as normal and add that there will be security restrictions on parking, as well as at the drop off and pick up points.

They also want to make people aware that the supersonic car tests cannot be viewed from the airport car parks.
