PROPOSALS TO split 31 High Street, Camelford into two flats may result in objections according to pre-application advice. Development Officer Helen Trebilcock said: ‘In my opinion the subdivision of the dwelling into two flats is unlikely to be supported without adequate provision of parking and outdoor amenity space. However, if sufficient safe and suitable access, off-road parking and amenity space can be demonstrated, and internal layouts demonstrate acceptable sized living space, the next stage would be to address the River Camel SAC phosphate loading which would require professional help and advice to ascertain whether the increase in occupancy would increase phosphate loading from the property.’
THE GO-ahead has been given for North Tamerton Victory Hall to be extended at the rear to create a new meeting room. The application attracted support from locals who said the extension would enable smaller groups and organisations in the village to meet in more appropriate and comfortable surroundings without the need to heat the main hall.
A SHOWER/toilet block in a barn on the former campsite at Pencuke Farm, St Gennys can be converted into a dwelling with an extension. The metal sheet roof will be retained for the time being.
A SMALL scale affordable home development of eight houses and eight flats in Tresmeer may not gain officer support according to pre-application advice. Planners said the proposed dwellings represent an extension into undeveloped, open countryside on a site not allocated for residential development in the Neighbourhood Plan.
However, in light of the increase in housing need Senior Development Officer Paul Steen acknowledged the situation was fluid and said it may be beneficial for the applicant to proceed with an outline application to establish the principle of development. But he warned it would require a robust evidence-based justification including a housing needs survey in liaison with the parish council to establish any ‘hidden’ housing need in the parish.
OUTLINE planning permission has been granted for a house to be built on land east of Navarino Bungalow at North Petherwin.
RETROSPECTIVE planning has been given for an alpaca shelter on land northwest of Aldercombe Cottages, Kilkhampton.
PERMISSION has been requested to remove an agricultural occupancy condition at The New House, Lower Trossell, North Petherwin. The application follows a marketing campaign of over 12 months to find a buyer for the house priced at £327,500.
But when prospective buyers realised there was an agricultural occupancy condition they could not comply. The application says there is no demand for a property where the occupier has to derive their income from agriculture or forestry and says that the occupancy condition now serves no purpose and is unduly onerous.
The four-bedroom detached property was given planning permission with the occupancy condition in 1983 when the site formed part of Lower Trossell Farm. The land is no longer farmed by the Andrews family and the New House is now a separate entity.
A SHED which was built to provide animal housing and feed storage at Dunns Farm, Boyton could be turned into a one-bedroom home. Planning has been applied for.
PLANNING has been applied for to convert a barn on land southeast of Lower Dutson Farm near Launceston into a home.
PERMISSION has been applied for to demolish a garage at Tregantle Cottage, Victoria Road, Flexbury to create a self-contained annex with a terrace.
n A HOUSE can be built on a parcel of land formerly known as Sunnymeade, Combe Lane, Widemouth Bay. A previous permission for a three-bed two-storey house had lapsed without being implemented – the current proposals are identical.
THE GO-AHEAD has been given for a replacement dwelling on land to the north of Hawthorns, Higher Larrick, Trebullett.
PART OF a car sales showroom at Douglas Business Park, Pennygillam Way, Launceston can be used as a hot food takeaway.
The building is currently vacant and according to the planning statement the works associated with the occupation of the site by Domino’s will enhance the building and could provide up to 25 full and part time jobs.
The unit is located between Tool Station and Sprys of Launceston car sales showroom.
