Client: Port of Falmouth Development Initiative (PoFDI)
Tibbalds led a team comprising Roger Tym & Partners, Buro Happold and Davis Langdon to produce a masterplan for the Port of Falmouth. The client is formed of public and private sector organisations, including: Cornwall Council, Cornwall Development Company, Falmouth Harbour Commissioners, A&P Port Operations and Pendennis Yachts.
The Port is home to some significant employment uses, including: ship repair, yacht building, leisure boating and tourism, and cruise ships. The aim of the masterplan is to support the growth of these existing businesses, whilst also developing new sectors. The potential for growth of the marine renewable sector is particularly exciting.
Whilst the masterplan focuses on the Docks, it also provides a vision for the wider Port area and ‘locks into’ other strategies and plans for Falmouth, including the:
- Strategic Investment Framework (SIF) which sets out priorities for applications for European funding;
- emerging Cornwall Council Core Strategy; and
- Falmouth and Penryn Community Plan.
