The Public Consultation Is Now Closed

Thank you for all your comments! It is great to see the local residents and the community getting involved in the Land at Hospital Cross development proposals.
The public consultation has now closed. We have collated your comments and will be progressing the design for the scheme based on your feedback as well as information gathered from technical investigations and surveys.


This consultation website has been prepared to inform you about the future vision and proposed development for a new retail park on the edge of the built-up area of Hospital Cross, Helston.

Parsonage Developments seek to develop the land for Class E (commercial, service and business) use. This includes the delivery of an Aldi foodstore, a Range home and leisure store with associated garden centre and McDonald’s drive thru / to restaurant (Class E / Sui Generis). This range of retail uses respond positively to an identified need for such development and will serve Helston. The development will also deliver at least 250 jobs, education and skills opportunities to local people, and provide a significant economic boost to the area.

Pre-application advice was sought from Cornwall Council in September 2020 to help better understand the matters associated with the development as well their potential impacts, particularly with respect to highways and transport and upon Helston Town Centre. Discussions have also been held with Helston Town Council regarding the development proposals and use of the former Budgens as well as RNAS Culdrose with respect to the potential impacts upon its land and operations.
