Developers get another opportunity!!!


Cornwall Council’s decision to refuse planning consent for hundreds of homes in Truro will be the subject of a public inquiry to be held in August.    The council’s strategic planning committee turned down the plans for up to 320 homes at Tolgarrick Farm, Green Lane.

 The developers, Persimmon Homes South West, appealed against the decision and a public inquiry will start at 10am on August 6 in the council chamber of the former Carrick offices on Pydar Street.

Comment   Unsurprising that the developer has gone to appeal and there is to be an inquiry.  They did promise to do so!

It is a defect of the planning system.  Developers can go back several times to appeal, unlike the local community who cannot!   You might think that with so much excess housing in the pipeline this would be turned down.

Probably not – with the Government’s obsession with the unsupported assertion that houses bring  jobs and it will be sustainable this will probably get the go-ahead.

The developers stated that housing brings prosperity, jobs and security – where is the evidence for this? Housing numbers have doubled since the 1960s,  has this brought prosperity to Cornwall?  No we thought not.
