A bungalow overlooking The Lizard Square could be knocked down and two built in its place.

Plans have gone in to Cornwall Council for the demolition of the existing bungalow, Farley, which is directly opposite The Lizard green and square.

In its place two semi-detached dormer bungalows would be built.

The plans, put together by Cornwall Planning Group on behalf of Kitley Homes, show an ‘upside down’ layout.

Both properties would have three bedrooms - two of which would be ensuite - and the main bathroom on the ground floor, while upstairs would be the kitchen and open plan living room and dining opening, opening out onto a first-floor terrace through French doors.

The proposal states that each property would come with two parking spaces provided, as well as an “additional amenity area that could provide visitor parking in the future”. It also points out that the area is “highly sustainable” meaning there is no legal requirement to provide on-site parking.

The architects state: “We believe that the details submitted clearly show that the site can be developed in a way that the locality will not be adversely affected; indeed, there is a clear opportunity to provide a high-quality development to meet the needs of present and future generations.”

They add that there are “several comparable application sites” that have been approved recently.

The plans can be viewed on Cornwall Council's planning portal, reference PA23/01640, where comments can also be left.
