A PLAN to convert a barn into a dwelling at Gooseford Farm, St Dominick is among the recent planning applications that have gone before Cornwall Council. The scheme is for a four-bedroomed property, all with en suites, in a two- storey building.

PLANNING permission has now been put in for a building to house a mobile saw mill which was erected without consent at Little Norton, Stoke Climsland. The applicant, Tom McMahon, has been a tree surgeon for over 20 years and built the shed to accommodate the mill in April.

PLANS to convert two barns to create two three-bedroomed properties and a single one-bed property at Lower Lampetho Farm, Polpey Lane, Tywardreath, are being considered by Cornwall planners. Mark Tuckett has asked the Council to determine if prior approval is required.

PLANNING has been applied for for the change of use of land at Sunnydene, East Taphouse, to site a single-storey prefabricated mobile home/caravan to be used as holiday/guest accommodation.

A PLANNING application has been submitted for two new dwellings and a single-storey extension to the existing house at Jedcott, Dobwalls.

PLANS to extend a historic outbuilding in Darite have not been welcomed by planners.

Pre-application advice has been given for proposals to convert and extend an old building in the grounds of Thorne Cottage to provide either additional family or holiday accommodation. The applicant, Matthew Loughrey-Robinson, was told that there may be scope for a modest reuse of the building for holiday purposes only because the building was too small and too far away from the main house to use as an annexe.

An extension, however, would not be welcomed because of the historic and rural character of the property. The planning officer said the building was clearly of some historic interest and suggested any future application and design should be informed by a Historic Impact Assessment given its age and position in the World Heritage site.

PLANNING consent has been given to build a replacement dwelling at West Hill Cottage, West Looe.

AN APPLICATION to expand the existing camping use on land south of Barley House, Mornick, Callington, has been rejected. Planners said the proposal was unjustified and sporadic development in open countryside with poor accessibility to services and would create unsustainable traffic.

South Hill Parish Council agreed saying: ‘The positioning of the land and the site itself is unsuitable given the ground precipitance.

The site would dominate and spoil the existing appearance of the valley. Parking for the site is insufficient and turning areas are not available. Access is only suitable by foot.’

MORRISONS in Liskeard has withdrawn a planning application to demolish its petrol station kiosk and build a larger kiosk.

FIVE new static caravans, two shepherds’ huts and a new toilet have been given the go-ahead at Kymsland, Blowinghouse Lane, Bodmin. The camping pitches will be reduced from 40 to 30. However, Bodmin Town Council did not support the application because of access.
