Former Madron Meat Company Site, Penzance, Cornwall

This was a derelict site previously used as an abattoir and fish canning business. Historically the original use of the site was as a workhouse. Our planning application proposed to refurbish the workhouse as open market dwellings, and to introduce to the site a Care Home with a dedicated Dementia Care Unit alongside a development of Extra Care apartments with support facilities, and four new affordable homes. Working closely with the Local Authority Planning Department, the scheme was granted planning approval in March 2009.
