MP Derek Thomas in surgery at the Star Inn, Newlyn.

Just a quick head's up - local Conservative MP Derek Thomas will be holding one of his surgeries in the Star Inn, Newlyn on November 4th.

This is a great chance for all those connected with the fishing community in Newlyn to speak with their MP face-to-face on all things fisheries related.

Two important issues facing Newlyn:

Housing of any sort for working people in Cornish coastal communities is becoming a real issue as demand outstrips supply- with so many properties having been turned over to second or holiday homes - there is a real lack of affordable housing in the area - either to let at affordable rents or to buy near to your place of work. 

The harbour commissioners are currently looking at major concept plans to double the size of the harbour using Sandy Cove in conjunction with Marina Developments Ltd - the concept for these plans can be seen on the harbour's Advisory Board page.
