Plans to rebuild a Cornish hotel and pub which was badly damaged by a fire on Christmas Eve in 2021 are among the latest planning applications submitted to Cornwall Council in the week beginning May 29.

Pre-application plans have been submitted by MKS Leisure to rebuild The Cheesewring Hotel, Minions, following significant damage caused by a fire on Christmas Eve in 2021.

There are to be no changes to the overall layout of the Cheesewring Hotel, Minions near Liskeard, as the hotel is to be restored in a “like for like manner”. The hotel and pub has been a part of the village since 1863 and is one of the oldest in the area

An investigation by Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service found that the likely cause of the fire was an “internal electrical fault”. It has remained closed ever since the blaze, which was tackled by fire crews from Liskeard, Callington, Launceston, St Austell, Bodmin and Looe.

A local Facebook page for Minions posted on the day of the blaze read: “This morning a fire devastated our village pub The Cheesewring. We can only imagine how Marcia and Gary, their family and their staff must be feeling. Sending love to all involved.”

Due to the Bank Holiday weekend there were far less planning applications lodged last week than usual, many of which are for extensions of existing properties or single dwelling builds.

There is an amendment for approval of appearance, landscaping and layout details following outline permission to build the first phase of 178 homes on land east of Morrisons, Priory Road, Bodmin, on behalf of Persimmon Homes.

Boss Property Group has applied for the discharge of various construction and drainage works conditions for a housing development of 22 dwellings and associated works, which was approved in April, on land north of the former Tesco store on Clodgey Lane, Helston.
