The plans for phase two have nearly doubled in size since phase one was unveiled last year

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has unveiled plans for a 377-home scheme in the Cornish coastal town of Hayle, near St Ives.

The £200m scheme will be the second phase of the architect’s masterplan for the historic town on the county’s northern coast.

The town’s port and wider region was made a Unesco World Heritage site in 2006 because of its role in the county’s tin mining history.

The original masterplan aimed to add 160 homes in its second phase. These proposals have now more than doubled its size, bringing the total number across both phases to 522.

Phase one, which was given the go-ahead last summer and started construction earlier this year, consists of 145 homes, 2,000m2 of waterfront retail space and 600m2 of office space.

The second phase will add a cinema and art gallery to the north side of the town’s harbour.

A water sports centre, a boutique hotel, a footbridge, new quayside toilets and showers will also be added, as well as a restoration of a grade II-listed stable.
