A proposed single storey extension to the rear of 52 Tresillian Road in Falmouth has been described as “ugly” and “hideous” by town councillors who are urging Cornwall Council to reject the application.

Councillors accepted that in principle there is room for an extension, but would want to see something of a more suitable design.

“It will completely change the street scene,” said Councillor Rowenna Brock. “It is ugly.”

Councillor Steve Eva added: “It’s totally not in keeping with the area. It looks like a Lego set. It is hideous.”

The committee agreed it would be over-bearing and not in keeping.
