Penryn Town Council has raised no objections to a resident of Penvale Crescent building a "glorified shed" in their back garden.

The residents of 25 Penvale Crescent had sought planning permission for a "single storey log cabin" in their back garden, made of tongue and groove panels.

Councillor Gill Grant called the structure a "glorified shed," Councillor Mark Snowdon added, "that's a garden shed," before Councillor Grant conceded, "a summer house."

Councillors questioned why the application had even progressed to the planning stage because, as town clerk Michelle Davey stated, the size of the structure means it shouldn't require permission.
