Plans have been submitted to Cornwall Council for the:

Demolition of the existing hotel, erection of 26 dwellings (including 30% affordable housing), access, landscaping and associated development. | Cliff Hotel Maer Down Road Flexbury Bude Cornwall EX23 8NG

The planning application number is PA23/00748 

There are already a number of public objections listed.

The application has been submitted by developer, Acorn Blue in Cheltenham, and design is by Trewin.

The hotel would be demolished and replaced with 26 homes. Under the proposals 30% of the homes would be ‘affordable’, providing eight properties.

A design and access statement says: “The proposal demonstrates how a quality residential development can be delivered on land which will help meet future housing needs” and expresses the view that the land is appropriate for residential development, saying:

“The proposals provide for high quality housing with a mix to meet local housing needs in a sustainable location and will significantly contribute to the housing supply in the local area.”

It is bound to be controversial.
