Don’t destroy Hardy land, Prince of Wales told by Downton creator Julian Fellowes Those who watched the Prince of Wales embellish his credentials as the defender of the countryside in a special edition of Countryfile on BBC1 at the weekend will have been impressed by his love of all things rural.

Anti-royalists will descend on Cornwall today to rally support for a campaign to abolish the Duchy of Cornwall, Prince Charles’ £728m land and property portfolio. Campaigners want the 53,000-hectare estate, most of which lies in the south-west, to be handed over to local people to boost the rural economy. The protest comes amid growing disquiet [...]

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 [...]

Be nice if the council acted on the Prince’s advice!

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, [...]

Truro is too big already

I think we need more information on who is arranging the meeting, who will be there and what the format will be. Apologies if this information is already available [...]

What a depressing prospect is Poundbury!

Re. Poundbury – where the past is waiting in the future What a depressing prospect and even accompanied by some of the dreariest, least inspiring music that has ever been ‘composed’!  One enormous building site after all these years, hardly any people, few shops or businesses, especially any actually doing anything let alone anything being [...]

Poundbury – where the past is waiting in the future

Have a day out, go to Poundbury, wear short trousers and a gravy stained tie or a gymslip and chillproof knickers. Welcome to your past. Poundbury is a residential extension to Dorchester in Dorset. It was the brain child, not the best words, of Prince Charles. What is unique about Poundbury is that it has [...]

Truro girl speaks out about Waitrose

0 Comments

As a Truro girl – born and bred but now living near Grantham I wholeheartedly agree that Truro Council and the Chamber of Commerce shouild take note of  this article, and think long and hard about Waitrose (ie Prince Charles’ fund for Camillas increasingly outlandish hats). In Grantham, shops are closing week by week and there [...]

Things have gone quiet which is always significant of potential danger ahead.  We learn that the planning application may not be decided until December but this is no time for complacency, and if what happened at St Dennis is anything to go by, the Council will use the intervening period to start work at Trevella [...]

Duchy denies claims farmer will be put out of business

CLAIMS a Cornish tenant farmer will be put out of business by plans to build on agricultural land on the east of Truro have been unequivocally denied by the Duchy of Cornwall. Against a backdrop of rolling maize-filled fields, protesters waving St Piran’s flags and wielding placards lined the main A390 at Union Hill, Truro, [...]

This whole scheme reeks of excuses, lies and double-dealing

I agree entirely with Philip Buddell’s points but the main point being missed by it seems everyone is the vast increase in traffic using the approach roads to the present traffic lights at the A39/A390 junction. Living in Tresillan, I am more aware than most of the so called knowledgeable councillors, of the present problem [...]

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

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 [...]
