If you are passionate about protecting Port Navas Quay and this general area please let us have your comments. The whole Area is designated an AONB (Area of Outstanding National beauty) and there are protected SSIs in the Helford River (Sites of Special Scientific Interest). Click onto ‘Have your Say’ to contact the various organisations who are supposed to protect the area. You can also find us on Twitter at @BrutonMichael.
Thank you for all your positive and constructive emails and letters - which have been generally very supportive. We are open to all opinions and unlike some webites we will publish critical comments too.
These are a sample of your comments so far:
" Well done on your letter in the West Briton (09/04/2009) and an excellent website." (Helford Resident)
" Unfortunately we have found that there are so many people around who will gladly support the desecration of all we respect and admire. Their only agenda seems to be to support commercial organisations and to spite the people who are fortunate to live in these places."
" I wanted to say how disgusted I am to see the damage to this lovely part of the Helford (referring to Port Navas Quay). My congratulations to those who put together this website." (Falmouth Resident)
" How sad that the area that I visited as a child is now a virtual building site. Where I walked freely on the Quay in the 1980s, sitting and admiring the view, I now hold tight to my children's hands - nervous of the wire, barrels and dirt. Surely this is wrong?! " (London resident - frequent visitor to Port Navas and the Helford area)
" It is a disgrace that the present Lessee should be able to desecrate such an area of outstanding beauty and scientific interest..." (Redruth Resident) Click here to read in full.
