Plans to build 30 houses on a former market garden in Mylor were approved by Cornwall Council this week.

The development of 20 affordable and ten open market homes was given the nod by the council's Central Sub-Area Planning Committee on Monday, who approved the application by ten votes to two.

Opponents had derided the location of the development as unsuitable and dangerous, effectively concreting over an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Supporters made their voices heard at a public meeting last month, saying affordable housing was badly needed in the parish.
