An outline application for the site was submitted to Cornwall Council in August 2018. The application was approved on August 21, 2019 for outline planning permission with some matters reserved for a residential development comprising 30 dwellings (including affordable housing) and open space with all matters reserved except access. Under this outline planning permission, some matters were approved in detail, whilst others were reserved for future consideration. Accordingly, a reserved matters application, which was submitted pursuant to application PA18/07352, sought approval for the construction of 30 dwellings, public open space, landscape planting, pedestrian, cycle and vehicular links, pumping station and associated infrastructure. This has been granted.
In the planning statement prepared by LRM Planning Limited on behalf of Burrington Estates (New Homes Developments) Ltd the development is described: “The submitted scheme is in conformity with the parameters established through the original permission. The proposed development is therefore consistent with the design principles established at the original application stage, which were found to be acceptable.”
