Penzance Heliport Gets Green Light from Planners

A message from Robert Dorrien-Smith to supporters of the Penzance Heliport project…

I am delighted to confirm the deadline for legal objections has now passed and, with no challenge lodged, our planning permission stands.

We can now get on with the job of building the heliport, restoring Penzance as the helicopter gateway to the Isles of Scilly, and reinstating helicopter flights to St Mary’s and Tresco.

Our attention now turns to the construction phase of the project, beginning with the careful fulfilment of our planning conditions, after which we expect construction to take place during late 2018 and 2019. We hope to have helicopters operating between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly once more from spring 2020.

As soon as we have further updates we will, of course, keep you informed, but in the meantime, updated information is available on our website.

With best wishes, and sincere thanks for all your support to date,

Robert Dorrien-Smith & the Penzance Heliport Team
