Des Mennear thanks Fiona Ferguson

I was extremely pleased to read the letter about the proposed development on the Eastern Boundary of Truro from Cornwall Councillor, Fiona Ferguson, in last week’s West Briton. This makes it a “Full House” of Cornwall Councillors, representing Truro on the Council, who are opposed to the application which will destroy the approach to the city [...]

Far too precious to replace it with an urban sprawl

Monday, November 28, 2011

2 Comments

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 [...]

We’ll have a massive traffic problem if TEDC goes ahead

Friday, November 4, 2011

3 Comments

The one factor that concerns me over the possible Truro Eastern Development is the massive traffic problem that will occur if it gets the go ahead! The situation now is horrendous – just experience it by driving into Truro using either the A390 through Tresillian or the A39 from the Trispen direction – the queues [...]

Influence of bus-based park and ride facilities on users’ car traffic

Monday, October 10, 2011

0 Comments

Appropriate caveats must be applied to generalisations from case studies to national, or even international, situations. However, the range of data that emerged from the case studies supports the conclusion that urban-fringe bus-based park and ride provided with dedicated bus services is better described as a policy of car traffic redistribution than a policy of [...]

Stop trying to pickle Truro in aspic

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

2 Comments

I support the proposal for a Waitrose/park and ride in Truro on the Eastern District Centre site. The weakness of the arguments advanced against the development demonstrates your lack of objectivity and even-handedness. Waitrose has been a catalyst for town development in numerous cases (eg Monmouth) and has stimulated trade. Waitrose is the only one [...]

Truro Eastern District Centre? – Ros Cox says it all

Monday, September 19, 2011

0 Comments

Ros Cox says it all. I especially agree with the suggestion that the Newquay Road should be the barrier for development east of Truro. This was always the case and any development that side of the road encroaches on a beautiful unspoilt valley. The Trevella valley where I grew up is uncrossed by roads and [...]

Wool Over Who’s Eyes

Saturday, September 3, 2011

Reading a recent article on the thisiscornwall website,about how a local farming family are hoping to become one of the new producers for the ‘Cornish Food Store’, is this not a case of wool being pulled over the eyes just to get the backing of local farmers who believe they will get a chance to [...]

Latest Comment from Cllr Carlyon

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Much work has been done by Cornwall Council in respect of the advantages of providing an eastern Park and Ride.  However, the supermarket Waitrose is to be built alongside the Park and Ride and this must be expected to increase the traffic along Tregolls Road in both directions. What is the calculated increase in traffic [...]

From: Carole Bannister Subject: Eastern Green Development Message Body: NO! NO! NO! Truro does not need to get bigger, it is the tenant farmer who is suffering, and if this goes ahead there will be more good agricultural land subjected to concrete.  Are governments not aware of the growing food shortage? I say NO! as [...]

From: Michael Stone > Subject: Best development proposal I have seen for Truro Message Body: The proposed development on the East Truro boundary is the best proposal for Truro that I have seen, in that it combines infrastructure improvements to help with the major traffic problems that Truro faces, limited housing development which will help [...]

Traffic congestion at junction of Tregolls Rd and Penair Crescent

The above junction is about 250 metres from the proposed site. It is difficult at this juction now to leave or enter our estate via Penair Crescent and, with the additional traffic, it will be inpossible unless some form of traffic control is installed. There is no other entrance to the estate. Lawrence Hanks

Oppose on all Grounds

Hi, Thank you for the emails opposing the Union Corner/EDC development. I support all efforts to oppose it including,……………………………… This would be justified on the grounds of the undemocratic collusion of the Council and Duchy who present the scheme as a fait accompli. As a very minor example of this, Waitrose was giving out free “goody-bags” [...]

Strongest Possible Objection to the Truro Eastern District Centre

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

2 Comments

(copy of letter) Dear Mr Lloyd I wish to register the strongest possible objections to the above application on the following grounds: 1)  The Duchy site is the wrong location for any park-and-ride scheme, which should be located at Denas Water east of Tresillian.  At just 1.1/4 miles from the city centre, it is simply [...]

Council’s Short Sighted View

Monday, August 8, 2011

0 Comments

To build on this land, I consider, will be a short sighted and wrongly directed decision by its promoters and planning officers. The land should be protected, it is after all a huge asset for the City of Truro, capitalising on the uplifting beautiful countryside  on both leaving and approaching the city from the St Austell end. What [...]

It’s the wrong site

Sunday, August 7, 2011

0 Comments

It seems to me that only logical reason for siting the development as proposed is to enable the Park and Ride to reduce traffic flow into Truro, but it appears that it will barely neutralise the effect of the development itself. In other words the P&R is proposed only to enable the housing and Waitrose [...]

Do you remember the Roadworks from the 1960s

Sunday, July 24, 2011

0 Comments

Many residents of Truro will recall the major highways works which occurred in the late 1960s to establish the town centre distributor roads (Station Hill, Bosvigo/City Road, Fairmantle Street) and (St Austell/St Clement Streets) – along which the multi-storey car parks were sited. It is this which created the town centre environment which is so [...]

1)      Noise:It is noted the household waste recycling centre (HWRC) is surrounded by trees and shrubs with unlikely detrimental impact on other use proposals. However, I question the suitability of this location immediately off the A390 and impact on traffic flows that this will have. It is noted that the proposed housing element of this [...]

Do Not Build On The Green Belt says ex-chairman of Truro Chamber of Commerce

Thursday, July 21, 2011

I would expect, that like me, the majority of Truro & Tresillian residents will be against the proposed scheme. It would seem from what I have read that both the Duchy and Cornwall Council give the impression that they are railroading this development through. I am convinced it is not in Truro’s interest. I attended [...]

I am sending this email to voice my objections to the proposed development plans for this large scale development near my village of Tresillian.
