In November Cornwall Live reported how a request for pre-application advice for the development of the site at Roseworthy Hill has been made to Cornwall Council , signifying the first steps on the road to the potential opening of the development.
The proposed mixed-use scheme comprises a retail and several drive-through units, with associated parking, access and landscaping arrangements. The plans have been put forward by Quora Camborne Ltd.
