PA20/04727Location: Lynher Cottage Middlewood North Hill Launceston Cornwall PL15 7NN Proposal: Construction of dwelling and garage to include associated works. Applicant: Mrs Hewart

First comment dated 10 July 2020 The Parish Councillors of North Hill Parish Council have reviewed this application and wish to make the following comment: Councillors are concerned on a number of issues regarding this application, first being, the entrance and exit to the property, from the road, it is a very narrow part and extremely restricted. Secondly, the proposed dwelling is not in keeping with the surrounding properties. Councillors also believe the property and land has agricultural ties. Therefore, Cllr C Marshall proposed against the development with 2nd Cllr D Daniells, Councillors M Stephens, R Randall and B Ruby in agreement.

Second comment dated 9 March 2021 The Parish Council have reviewed and discussed this application and wish to make the following comment: The Parish Councillors visited this proposed development in June 2020 and held several concerns, on which, majority of Councillors voted to object and did not support this application. Councillors have reviewed the revised application; the proposed development goes against the North Hill Development Plan Item H3. New housing developments or conversions of existing buildings for residential purposes should be in keeping with the surrounding built form in terms of scale, mass and appearance and should normally be in traditional Cornish style where it is in keeping with other buildings in the immediate surrounding area. Where appropriate, new house building and house conversion schemes should adopt energy saving measures, using innovative design and techniques. Councillors would also like to bring it to the attention of Cornwall Council that on the basis of previous applicants' development, was turned down by Cornwall Council as they stipulated that developments should not extend beyond the existing Hamlet settlement. Councillors would also like to state, the members of the public have objected to this development via the Planning Portal. The Parish Councillors wish to know if the Highways Dept attempted to exit the site onto the B3254 or did a 'drive by'? Therefore, the Parish Council do not support this application voted by all Councillors with Cllr Parsons abstaining.

Applicant: Mr Andrew Bloomfield

The Parish Councillors of North Hill Parish Council have reviewed the above application and wish to make the following comment: With the proposed 16 houses, 5 Affordable Housing and 11 Open Market, the dwellings are well spaced leaving plenty of room between the properties. It is also believed that some of the properties will be suitable for the elderly, with having bedrooms downstairs. Councillors are keen to support this development, as 2 previous Planning Applications has been submitted over a period of 20 years. Proposed by Cllr Ruby to support the application seconded by Cllr M Budge with all Councillors in favour. Cllr Parsons abstained.
