Deacon Petition

People are asking what they can do to oppose the developer-led planning. Here’s one suggestion. Let’s pre-empt their consultation and tell the Council we don’t want our countryside used to build soulless estates of unaffordable houses for the profit of the big developers. Take the first step and register your opposition to plans to build [...]

Skullduggery at Coyte Farm?

Thursday, October 17, 2013

2 Comments

Opponents of the Coyte Farm development will be interested to know that following the developers proposals and the objections to it by Ellandi, Cornwall Council commisioned a report by GVA (the UK’s largest independent commercial property consultants) to establish a non partisan view on the proposed retail developments in St. Austell. The draft of this [...]

Having seen the article in the press today regarding the Judicial Review request taken out by Truro City Council (TCC) against the development at Langarth, the S4C Group is also equally disappointed with the persistence of TCC in still employing delaying tactics affecting the provision of the Stadium, which received unanimous planning approval in April [...]

All change on the Strategic Planning Committee

So it’s goodbye to the Planning Champion, Mike (‘I move we approve’) Varney and welcome to Rob Nolan, the new Chairman of the Strategic Committee. No, it won’t be the end of mass development in Cornwall but Cllr Nolan should at least bring a better sense of balance to the system as, sadly, the Cornwall [...]

This is what we’re up against.

Although Save Truro remains strictly neutral in the case for or against the Stadium, the news from County Hall merely reinforces our view that there are dark forces at work up at Treyew Road. However, our congratulations must go to Scott Mann for exposing yet another “deal behind closed doors”

Re. Mad Waitrose scheme in Truro Couldn’t agree more, please leave our greenfields alone and no more developments, none of us want them, it’s just the developers that are pushing for all this building. The visitors to Truro surely don’t want them either. They come to Cornwall for some green space and peace! Not another [...]

Tension mounts on Lemon Quay

Sunday, February 12, 2012

1 Comment

Life for managers of the Lemon Quay estate is very tense at the moment – Peacocks has gone into administration and there is constant uneasiness in the Boardroom at HMV – a recent  revival package would seem to keep hope alive for the Truro shop for now, but perhaps the change in emphasis and the [...]

Kaczmarek – Cornwall’s King Lear

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

1 Comment

“I shall do such things, I know not yet what they are, but they shall be the terror of the earth!” Mark Kaczmarek, Cornwall Council’s cabinet member for planning, said its soon-to-be-approved Core Strategy would dictate where 48,000 new homes were built over the next 20 years, not large housebuilders. He predicted that urban areas [...]

Concreting over Cornwall – It is time to put up or shut up

Friday, January 27, 2012

Do you want the population of Cornwall to double by 2100? How about doubling the amount of cars on our already potholed, unfit for purpose road system? What about wholesale development on the very thing that makes Cornwall such a stunning place to live – our green and pleasant land? Well it is a case [...]

Bin the Core Strategy?

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

0 Comments

Dear Friends, Are you, like many of us, dismayed at Cornwall Council’s short-sighted housing growth agenda? Do you share our concerns at the way the Council’s Core Strategy, far from slowing down growth, sets about increasing it? Across Cornwall, groups of objectors have been seeking a better way by opposing plans for large housing projects [...]

Keep up the pressure says Doris Ansari

We really do need to keep up the pressure. I am sure the developers including Cornwall Council will be working hard to convince the planners that this should go ahead. The public meeting held at Councy hall was well attended and people spoke with great Authority. I am more than ever convinced that this is the [...]

Cllrs should read Mary’s report

The report by Mary Portas made some sound observations about the decline in many town centres across the UK. It was also of interest that some of her positive comments were drawn from her visits to Cornwall . It is true that  places like Falmouth and Truro still offer a fairly vibrant town centre with [...]

The Council’s follies and Truro District Eastern Centre

It always bothers me when the ‘officials’ (please translate that as meaning the council) come up with a range of very dodgy statistics (please translate that as cutting traffic, affordable houses and all the other many very dubious statements that they have made) and give some consideration to the following: Sir Fred Goodwin, supported by [...]

They don’t make land anymore

A long serving much respected County Councillor was heard to say The TEDS is ‘signed and sealed, it will go through.’ If this is true then the pretence of democracy is a sham and corruption of power, in it’s widest sense is rampant.  The officers of the Council must show that this is not true [...]

Some years ago I worked for an M.P. In situations like this, whilst petitions are good for raising the profile of a problem, I can confirm that individual letters carry can carry even more weight. If everyone who has signed the petition would also write to the Council’s Planning Department, their M.P., and Eric Pickles, [...]

The Prince of Wales has launched an outspoken attack on ‘uncontrolled urban sprawl’. The heir to the throne warned it was one of the greatest challenges facing modern society and raised concerns about the lack of ‘proper thought’ going into mass development. Would it not be nice if the council acted on the Prince’s advice, [...]

What is it with these planners?

What is it with these planners? Have they not learnt from mistakes of this kind blithely made in the past, both here and elsewhere? Why try to turn Truro into a facsimile of Basingstoke, Swindon and all the rest? You would like to think that the Council has the welfare and well-being of Cornwall in [...]

Far too precious to replace it with an urban sprawl

Monday, November 28, 2011

How can our planners consider spoiling this beautiful valley? On entering or leaving Truro it is a view to remember and far too precious to replace with the urban sprawl suggested. To have Waitrose in your town or city is seen as a major coup but why? We are talking groceries! (and Duchy Originals of [...]

Big Business vs Common Sense

Swallowing up greenfield makes no sense apart from in the eyes of those who stand to make money from the exploitation of our natural treasure. This is only the start, and raises the even more desperately horrendous possibility, and a very real one, that the corridor for development will be opened up right along to [...]
