New biome plans submitted
Eden Project
The Eden Project is awaiting a 37m funding decision
Revised plans for a third biome at a major Cornish tourist attraction have been submitted to the local council.

The Eden Project has put forward proposals for a desert biome and an education resource centre to Restormel Borough Council.

The plans also include a visitor building, staff accommodation and more car parking.

The original plans, submitted in June, had to be amended after councillors objected to the height of the new biome.

Councillors were also concerned about the landscaping of part of the site, and the design of some of the buildings.

The new plans, which will be discussed by councillors on Tuesday night, address those concerns.

The height of the new biome has been reduced, while the design of the education resource centre, landscaping and car parking has been altered.
