More homes proposed for Penryn's Station Road

Falmouth Packet: An outline planning application is with Cornwall Council An outline planning application is with Cornwall Council

Councillors in Penryn have called for a site meeting to discuss an outline planning application for four three-bedroom houses on a plot of vacant land at Station Road.

Discussing the plans for three-floor houses, each with a footprint of approximately 36 square metres, the council said it supported development of the site but was concerned about issues including overdevelopment of the site, parking, and amenity space.

Councillor Mary May said: “We can support the development in principal, but three or four houses is a lot.”

She also raised concerns over whether the development would contribute to affordable housing.

what a shame that they are even considering the houses to be built. I lived in Penryn until the age of 26 when I got married and moved to Falmouth, Station road had no houses built there until the large one near the bottom, then came the student accommodation carbuncle on the landscape making the journey now down over station hill (even though I don't now live in the area I occasionally use that road) quite oppressive and claustrophobic. To have yet more housing built there will make it even worse. We may or may not need more housing but, the developers just seem to think anywhere will do with total disregard to road infrastructure.
