CORNWALL COUNCIL has given Cornwall Housing Limited permission to build an affordable housing scheme of 14 flats and seven bungalows at Turnstone Way, Binhamy, Stratton.
Occupancy of the 21 homes will be limited to applicants who meet the criteria set out in the Local Lettings Plan and they must have a local connection to Cornwall with priority given to those in the surrounding parishes. The homes will be available for occupation in Summer 2023 and are aimed at the over 55s.
Bude-Stratton Town Council had no objection to the scheme, but six residents did. There were concerns about the three storeys impacting on the neighbours leading to a loss of light.
The plans were revised in a bid to address this but one resident, Frank Partridge said: “The overall design of the flats is aesthetically awful, unimaginative and reminiscent of brutalist architecture from the 1950’s. To exacerbate, the proposed materials are a depressing grey/multibrick which also does not blend with the existing surroundings.”
