Wainhomes appeal public inquiry completed as scheduled
The Wainhomes planning appeal public inquiry commenced in Truro on 10 February 2015 and ran for its scheduled 3 days.
Cornwall Council was represented by its in-house solicitor, its planning officer and a highways consultant. They presented the case for refusal of the appeal on the grounds of unsafe highways. Probus Parish Council was represented by a barrister and a highways consultant, with the parish clerk in attendance. They supported the line taken by Cornwall Council. I, as your Cornwall Councillor, spoke against the proposal as did other residents of Probus.
Wainhomes was represented by a barrister, a planning consultant and a highways consultant.
Evidence was heard over two days followed by discussions on the morning of the third day about possible conditions should the inspector find in favour of Wainhomes. Then the inspector and other parties carried out a site visit including walking all the roads in the area and viewing the junction of Tregony Road with the A390.
The inspector hopes to publish his decision within a matter of weeks rather than months.
