According to last weeks West Briton:
Residents object to Four Lanes housing proposal
RESIDENTS have been lodging complaints at plans to build affordable homes in a small village near Redruth. Halsall Homes has submitted a planning application to Cornwall Council to build 22 affordable houses at the end of Trekye Close in Four Lanes. The one, two and three-bedroom houses would each have at least one parking space, a rear garden and cycle storage.
More than a dozen residents have voiced opposition to the plans on the Cornwall Council planning website citing poor drainage, the increased traffic and its effect on wildlife. Jenna Chamberlain wrote: “I do not feel the roads leading onto the proposed site can safely and effectively handle the increased traffic. “We have lots of small animal wildlife … and I am worried their habitats will be affected. “The proposed footpath on and off the site, goes adjacent to access we have across our neighbours gardens, and I do not feel adding a footpath here is appropriate.”
The deadline for the application is October 7.
Comment Some interesting comments. Does anyone know what the level of housing need is in Four Lanes? Are not the thousands of houses planned for Camborne, Illogan and Redruth parishes not enough to meet local need?
