Wainhomes lodges new appeal against the refusal of planning permission for their proposed development in Probus
On Monday 14 April, Cornwall Council Central Planning Committee considered the application by Wainhomes Ltd. for 90 houses on land off Tregony Road, Probus. The parish council and two local residents from Probus spoke against the application, as did I as your local councillor. There were no speakers in support of the application apart from the Wainhomes representative.
The committee expressed their concern about several aspects of the proposal but particularly in respect of the highways issue. The committee voted unanimously to refuse the application.
In July, Wainhomes lodged an appeal and we were advised that any further comments by local residents, the parish council etc. would need to be submitted to the planning inspectorate by 25 August.
Then, in early August, we were advised that there was a flaw in the appeal and the process had been put on hold until the company submits more documentation to the planning inspectorate.
In September, a new appeal was lodged by Wainhomes and it is likely that a public inquiry will be held to hear the appeal in early 2015, further details to follow in due course.
Any comments already made on the original application will be forwarded to the Planning Inspectorate and will be taken into account in decidiing the appeal. However, if you wish to make further comments or modify or withdraw previous comments, you can do so; or even if you just wish to emphasise the same comments as you made before, you can also do so. You can do so as follows:
