PREAPPLICATION advice has been given by Cornwall Council for the proposed conversion or demolition of an existing barn to create a new dwelling on land north of Cyder Cottage, Hilton Road, Marhamchurch.

The advice, which was given stipulated that in the view of the officer who wrote it, any proposed dwelling would be unlikely to gain support for approval.

They wrote in their conclusion to the request for advice from Mr and Mrs Hide: “A replacement dwelling would not be considered under Policy 7 (1) due to the amount of time which has passed since the site was used residentially.

There are no supporting policies for a new build dwelling on the site following the demolition of the barn.

“Although isolated, the site does have some distant connectivity with the settlement of Marhamchurch, however the lack of principle to create a dwelling in this location coupled with the inherent harm introducing domestic built form into the open countryside setting brings, means an application is overall unlikely to gain officer support.”

n A CERTIFICATE of lawfulness for proposed use of development has been granted for a proposed single storey extension at the rear of 11 Lundy Road, Port Isaac.

Mrs Frances Humby was told by Cornwall Council that the proposed extension was permissible under permitted development rules.

n CORNWALL COUNCIL has granted a certificate of lawful development for an existing use as confirmation of works commenced within the time limit of three years as per condition one of planning permission number PA19/07097.

Mr P Millward was given the permission by Cornwall Council for the property known as Best Penquite, Blisland, Bodmin.
