Plans to host concerts and sell alcohol on an historic harbour used in the BBC's Poldark programme are set to be decided on next week.
The owners of Charlestown Harbour have applied to Cornwall Council for a licence.
However, the plans have come up against opposition from local residents, the parish council and a Cornwall Council councillor as being "unsuitable".
Concerns have been raised over the safety of serving alcohol on the harbour's edge as well as the risk of anti-social behaviour and the lack of parking for visitors.
The application is due to go before the council's licensing act sub-committee when it meets next Wednesday.
A total of 29 objections have been received by the council.
Stop-go boards will be in place and delays are expected due to a defective cover, Plymouth Highways said.
It will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain for much of the day.
Most of the rain will be light but the occasional spell of moderate rain is possible at times.

An overnight Minor Injury Unit (MIU) service in north Cornwall is set to remain closed for the foreseeable future due to problems recruiting doctors to run the unit.
Stratton MIU near Bude reduced its opening hours to 08:00 to 22:00 in December having previously been open 24 hours a day.
Earlier this year health bosses apologised for the reduced hours and also for not consulting with local councillors about the forced closure which was due to safety.
Cornwall Council's health and adult social care overview and scrutiny committee will receive a report on the situation at a meeting later.
The report states that there have been continued efforts to recruit doctors for the unit but none have proved successful.
Councillors will be told that the service will be reviewed again in July.Copyright: Google
