The planning committee of Falmouth Town Council has supported an application to build three new dwellings on the site of St Michael’s Church Hall on Penwerris Lane.

Councillors said they would support approval of the plans, subject to access being kept available at all times during and after the development.

They heard from a Mrs Legassick of River View, who said the church yard was an important right of way, which provided disabled and elderly people with the only step free means of access to and from her street.
