Work to demolish Torpoint’s former police station has started, with housing and a community hub set to be built in its place.

The work is being led by Cornwall Council in liaison with the Torpoint Town Team Project Board, whose members include Cornwall Councillors, town councillors, Antony Estate, business and voluntary sector representatives, also representatives from the Neighbourhood Plan steering group.

The plans for the new development are currently being finalised, and will be subject to a public consultation before work begins on the new construction.

The demolition work is expected to last for around three months, but will not interfere with any ferry operations during this period.

Cllr Olly Monk, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for housing and planning said: "We are pleased to be working alongside Torpoint Town Council and other partners on a project that will revitalise the town centre through the creation of new homes, new commercial and community space, public realm and a better connectivity between the existing town centre and its water front.

"It is so important that we continue to identify these opportunities for projects that will truly benefit communities across Cornwall."

Cllr Gary Davis, member of Torpoint Town Council and Chair of the Town Team Project Board, said: “The Town Team Project Board is excited to be working towards the redevelopment of Torpoint’s former police station with Cornwall Council. 

"Our vision is to transform this unused site into a vibrant community hub that will benefit residents and visitors alike; and will include as part of the wider Lower Fore Street development opportunity, 35 new homes.  By repurposing this space, we are not only revitalising the area but also creating opportunities for social interaction, employment learning, and growth.”

“Our commitment is to keep any disruption during the demolition work to a minimum.  We understand the importance of clear communication and will ensure that any necessary road closures are well-publicised in advance.”

“Together with Cornwall Council and Torpoint Town Council, we are proud to bring this project to life, contributing to the betterment of our community.”
