Development given all clear

Plans to build 43 new flats on a historic Cornish site where contaminated water was discovered have been given the all-clear by the Environment Agency.

Building has resumed on the Lowena Homes complex at the old Penryn Gasworks, near Falmouth, after £200,000 was spent removing cyanide and arsenic.

Contamination set construction back twelve months.

The Redruth developer had to spend another £150,000 on further remediation works.
