PA23/02670: Planning permission is required for the conversion of a vacant ground floor Class E-commercial unit to create one one-bedroom flat in Gunnislake.

Mr Leifer had applied to Cornwall Council to seek prior approval for converting a commercial building to a dwelling for the property known as Creations at 8 Commercial Street, Gunnislake.

In their response, Cornwall Council’s planners said: “The proposal as detailed on the application form received on 29/03/2023 and supporting information in respect of the Change of Use of a commercial building to a dwelling is not considered to constitute permitted development as defined in Class MA, Part 3 of Schedule 2 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (as amended). This is because the site is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within a World Heritage Site. Planning permission is required.”
