The sites are on publicly accessible open space and the foreshore, and are accessible by public highway, although access to Garden Battery Beach will require arrangement with the Mt Edgcumbe Estate. Toll House Quay will remain in use by the ferry operations to/from Plymouth, each day at various times, during the construction period.
