If yes, then Cornwall Council can help. The authority has 18 sites across Cornwall - ranging from car parks to country parks and beaches - that are now available to lease for pop up businesses.

The aim of this scheme is to put Council-owned land to good use by providing business opportunities that enhance the local area. Money raised for the lease of these sites goes straight back into protecting and enhancing Cornwall’s unique natural environment.

In particular, the Council is looking for tenders that propose pop up ideas that will really enhance the local area for both residents and visitors – from coffee stalls, ice cream sellers and gourmet burger vans to deck chair hire, fitness classes and purveyors of gourmet dog biscuits.

The sites are listed below. If you wish to return a tender for a concession the deadline is Wednesday 19th December 2018 at midday.
