Wainhomes submits planning application for 90 houses in Probus
On 9 October 2012, Wainhomes held a public exhibition in Probus Village Hall to show plans of their proposed housing scheme in Probus. The site is a greenfield site on Tregony Road between Parkengear Vean and the bypass.
Many residents of the village expressed their concerns about the impact that such a scheme would have upon the village facilities such as the doctors' surgery, the school and the highways around the site.
On 6 November 2013, Wainhomes finally submitted a full planning application for the proposal. All the documents associated with the application are available online on the Council's planning portal. Enter the reference number PA13/09823 in the search box. If you would like to view the documents, once you have found the application, click on Documents, then View associated documents. A new window will open with a list of all the documents. Please note that sometimes this can be a very slow process particularly for an application such as this one where there are so many planning documents.
You can make comments on this application (and any other application) online through the planning portal. If you have not done this before, you will need to register with the website and login. Your comments, once submitted, will be displayed on the portal under this application immediately. So do not press submit until you are sure that you know what you want to say!
It is likely that the application will be decided by the Council's Central Planning Committee in January. I have asked that the planning officers and committee members attend a public meeting in Probus prior to the date of the planning meeting. I will notify residents of the date of this meeting when I have further details.
Below is a copy of the site plan. The houses at the top of the drawing in grey are in Parkengear Vean, in the bottom left hand corner is Griggs Garage.
