Site meeting - Dutson Road

This morning I went to a site meeting on Dutson Road to look at the plans for the old Abbeyfield Home. Despite the rain, there was a good turnout from local residents and the town council. In addition, there were three members of the planning committee, the applicants and council officers.

During the meeting I explained my worries over the lack of parking (there are 9 spaces proposed for 11 properties), a concern about over-development and the lack of affordable housing being provided. However I welcomed the principle of the development and the proposal to replace the front wall with a length of pavement. Many of these concerns were also expressed by local residents and the town councillors.

The decision on the application will be made at the formal planning meeting on Wednesday evening in Camelford.
