Improving the Waterfront - Attracting Tourists & Visitors
One way in which the town could become more attractive to tourists and visitors is to improve the waterfront - our best asset from a family tourism point of view. How feasible would it be to build beach hut type structures as pop up shops for seasonal purposes? A few tourist type shops would be perfect to brighten up the area and attract visitors. Regular events on the green too? Does anyone else think this a good idea?

Love it down the Waterfront however the children's area could do with improving... few swings for the really little humans Posted on Sat 13/09/14 10:03 AM

I think if you improve the waterfront it will echo in the town too with visitors spending the day walking around Saltash, most of them would need to drive through town to reach the waterfront. It's very shortsighted to focus on just the town with improvements. Posted on Sat 13/09/14 07:14 PM

Love the beach hut idea, the bus shuttle is brilliant as who wants to trundle down when you have the long walk back up?Posted on Sat 13/09/14 08:02 PM

We could do with a water taxi from Plymouth Barbican and Royal William Yard Posted on Sat 20/09/14 10:04 AM

A water taxi would be great, bringing in the tourists but will they walk up that hill??Posted on Tue 23/09/14 04:22 PM

I thought we had a water taxi or at least boats stopping from the river cruises - does anyone know about this? I know there are coaches filled with tourists each week stopping at the bottom. Local councillor Gloria Challen is arranging for them to stop in town. Posted on Wed 24/09/14 04:02 PM

The water taxi concept seems great in theory but in practice, would people be prepared to walk up the hill to town? Could the shuttle bus theory be implemented in the summer? Are any of these things a possibility - can the Saltash Chamber take this to the Council and establish this as they are obviously common ideas that at least need looking into.

yes, regn the Waterside. Need to do something with the Livewire eyesore. Knock it down and make a better development with a 'new' Livewiew inside. The Hoppa Bus could give people a FREE trip to the town centre. More sand required on the beaches and tell the bloke who runs the Union to cheer up and fix the window of his van.Posted on Mon 29/09/14 02:20 PM

I think we should get Livewire to organise a Live Aid charity concert to raise money to get that van window fixed. Posted on Tue 30/09/14 08:09 PM

What's happening with the old Waterfront pub then?Posted on Sun 05/10/14 09:20 AM

Councillor Bob Austin raised the point of the water taxi being implemented at the South East Cornwall Chamber meet up. It would be useful to contact the council to see if his enquiries achieved results? With regard to the Saltash Hopper - who actually owns this?? Posted on Sun 05/10/14 01:42 PM
RESPONSEPOSTED
The Hopper is owned by the community interest company-contact via 4 Fore st. The Waterfront is subject to development proposals but it would be a great idea to include Livewire.Posted on Wed 08/10/14 08:28 PM

The Town Council are liaising with a water taxi company. More news should follow soon. Posted on Wed 15/10/14 10:18 AM
