Falmouth Packet: University withdraws Woodlane campus plan University withdraws Woodlane campus plan

Falmouth University has withdrawn its planning applications which had sought consent to carry out improvements to the entrance of its Woodlane campus.

This would have partially demolished a wall, the removal of on-street parking spaces and introducing traffic calming.

Great so the residents of Trelawney Avenue will still have to suffer large lorries and vans coming down this road to enable them to deliver to the campus. This means they are either illegally parking in the turning area which has double yellow lines or blocking driveways!! The university needs to respect the residents instead of riding rough shot over them. Complaints fall on deaf ears.

So, we're you in favour of the proposal?

If they widened the entrance they would have no excuse for the vans etc not to use it. Unfortunately the campus has outgrown the site and now they are expanding so much they are gradually taking over Woodlane. Ideally I we would like to see it all moved to Tremough with parking of course. It seems a case though that the councils turn a blind eye to planning issues in relation to the uni letting it expand without parking. Trelawney Avenue is quite a narrow residential street and steep too and so not ideally suited to vans using it on a daily basis ignoring parking restrictions etc and whose drivers can be very rude when asked by residents to park considerately.
