Crugmeer Farm is in the heart of that lovely little peninsula that lies between Padstow, Trevone and Stepper Point on the North Cornwall coast. Described as being somewhat rundown there are ambitious plans to provide a multi-million pound business centre there which would create 30 jobs. The older buildings would be refurbished and the more modern sheds replaced with new build.
There is an interesting article here which explains in some detail what the proposal is all about. It appears to have good support from the Padstow area and seems to be environmentally sound. Inevitably there is concern about increased traffic in the area but lying on the road that merely terminates at Hawker's Cove near the mouth of the Camel I don't see that as a major problem.
All in all I see this as a major boost for the Padstow area and for the Cornish economy. I guess that Rick Stein would be pleased to see it happen as well with all the potential for his eateries!
