PLANNING has been refused to convert a garage into a home on land west of St Aubyns on Portruan Road, West Looe.

Twelve neighbours had objected to the plan saying it would set a precedent for other properties on Marine Drive to carry out similar development and that it would exacerbate the parking problem in the area with no off-road parking and lead to the loss of parking spaces already on the property.

There were also concerns about some neighbours losing their privacy.

Looe Town Council also objected saying it did not comply with the Neighbourhood Plan and that it would increase traffic in the area and further impact public amenity and access for emergency services.

  • A HOLIDAY accommodation unit cannot be built on land southwest of the West Wing of Cadson Manor Farm, St Ive. The reason for refusal was that the proposed accommodation was tantamount to a new dwelling in the open countryside and the limited benefits to the tourist economy do not outweigh the environmental harm.
  • A FOUR-BEDROOM bungalow can be built on the open space at Trevance Park, Tywardreath. But some locals are unhappy about this decision.  Concerns included the impact on neighbours’ privacy, loss of light and the size of the bungalow.
