Things you might have missed and ought to know about!
On ‘Its Our Cornwall’
Carbis Bay More on Gonwin Developments’ plans for this urban extension at Carbis Bay. Their planning statement says this will ‘provide high quality green spaces’ (rather than the current colour). The plan for 235 houses (21% social rented and 14% subsidised open market) may have attracted an equal number of 235 comments but it will be an ‘exemplar for sustainable development’ while meeting local housing needs (and a lot more!).
Carnkie, Wendron The developers considering 17 ‘affordable’ houses here at Carnkie, Wendron point out that ‘the Council agrees the village is a sustainable location for affordable housing’. But where isn’t a ‘sustainable location’ these days?
Trewoon Make the most of this view as it’s about to go if Kier Living of Truro and Sanctuary Housing get their way. They’re applying to build on the last bit of open land between Trewoon and St Austell. According to the parish council this land was supposed to remain a green buffer between the built-up areas. What a quaint idea.
Mylor Bridge Blue Cedar Homes of Exeter are seeking the planners’ opinion on a proposal for 15 ‘age restricted’ houses at Mylor Bridge. Presumably, they’ll be looking for quaint local characters to live in the three social rented houses which will be part of this ‘high quality luxury retirement community’. Other villages should be on the alert as Blue Cedar Homes are ‘actively seeking new sites’ for their settlements.
