Cornwall Live – Affordable homes and pub conversion into holiday lets among new planning applications in Cornwall

Cornwall Council will consider the applications below in the next few months

Every week dozens of planning applications are submitted to Cornwall Council, from conversions and demolitions to new businesses and housing.

Most of them are small and about things like new dormer windows or trees that need felling.

But large-scale housing schemes and infrastructure projects also follow the same route.

Below are three planning applications submitted to the local authority in the past week which you know you might need to know about.

All of these applications are awaiting a decision.

Conversion of pub into holiday lets

This is a planning application for the change of use from a pub to short term holiday lets.

It is for The Carew Arms, Antony Hill, Antony.

It was submitted by Antony Hospitality Holdings Ltd.

It is not known how many holiday lets would be built

Cornwall Council will consider application PA20/04314 by Monday, August 3.

Residential development

This is a planning application for the proposed development of four residential dwellings.

It is for the land off Forthvean Road, Porthtowan.

It was submitted by Westcountry Land on behalf of Business Location Services.

The site is currently agricultural land.

The proposed houses would be at least four-bedroom homes and eight car parking spaces would be created.

The application reads: “This design and access statement has been prepared by Westcountry Land and details proposals for four new detached dwellings on the enclosed land immediately adjacent to the settlement boundary on the south western edge of Porthtowan, south of Forthvean Road.

“The proposed development of four dwellings represents an appropriate, low density for this edge of village location, consistent with the density of housing elsewhere in the area.”

Application PA20/04003 will be considered by Monday, August 3.

Affordable homes

This is a planning application for the construction of eleven affordable rent and one-open market residential dwellings and formation of vehicular/pedestrain access.

It is for the land south of Dell Meadow, North Petherwin.

The application was submitted by Trewin Design Architects on behalf of Cornwall Rural Housing Association.

The site is currently a green field.

The proposal includes six one-bedroom houses, three two-bedroom houses, two three-bedroom houses and one four-bedroom house.

There would also be 24 car parking spaces.

The application reads: “The site sits to the west of the settlement of North Perthwin and is gently sloping to the north and is currently used for grazing.

“The house mix has been derived from the local need figures and consists of a wide range of unit floor area and bed spaces.

“The appearance of the scheme has been carefully considered to ensure that it enhances the appearance of the village.”

Cornwall Council will consider application PA20/03728 by Monday, September 7.
