Plans for new Jamie Oliver restaurant near Truro

Truro could soon have a brand new gourmet restaurant if the charity behind Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen gets its way.

The charity, The Cornwall Food Foundation, hopes to establish a 92 acre ‘Food To Fork’ eatery just outside the city, and only a few miles from The Valley’s Cornish cottage holidays.  

If given the go ahead the scheme will see a 155 home village built alongside a 70 acre farm, where produce would be grown and reared for a top rated on-site restaurant.

Should the plans come to fruition the farm, which would be at Higher Newham, would be managed by Duchy College students – who would also study on the site.

The charity runs its Watergate Bay restaurant under license from Jamie Oliver and has been responsible for turning around the lives of dozens of troubled youngsters over the years through its chef training scheme.

The plans for the scheme detail how the new restaurant would use farm-reared and grown produce, minimising food miles and guaranteeing the provenance of all its produce.

The plans also set out how, although the Foundation hopes to open two new restaurants in the next five years, this restaurant will have its own identity and won’t be branded as part of the Fifteen family.

The plans are also set to provide woods, orchards, allotments and fields for locals which will be protected from future development.

Should the scheme be approved it’s hoped the restaurant will open at some point in 2017.
