Present: Cllr Luscombe (Chair), Cllr Marshall, Cllr Repper, Cllr Wearne & Cllr Wood
In attendance: Elaine Youlton, Clerk; Teresa Marshall, Assistant Clerk.
The meeting was preceded by a period of Public Participation during which time local residents attending expressed views/concerns on the following applications:
PA18/03395, Robert Mehers & Katarina Berge neighbours to the property of 10 Pennance Parc raised their concerns and objections to this application.
PL18/47: Apologies: Cllr Anson (Work Commitment) Cllr Blewett (Family Commitment).

PL18/49: To consider written requests for dispensation.
PL18/50: To accept minutes of the last planning meeting.
Minutes of the meeting held on 10 April 2018 were approved and duly signed by the Chairman.
PL18/51: Matters arising from minutes.
PL18/52: To consider the following applications:
Proposal: To build a garage
Location: 4 Coppice Gardens Lanner Moor Lanner Redruth
Applicant: Mr K Woodman
Resolved: Council supports this application
Proposal: Proposed New Single Storey Side Extension
Location: 10 Pennance Parc Lanner TR16 5TY
Applicant: Mr & Mrs Wyate
Resolved: Council do not support this application; for the following reasons:
The proposal is for the erection of a self-contained separate dwelling and with separate access and kitchen facilities and is clearly neither ancillary to the existing dwelling nor is it an annex or extension. An annex or extension should physically link to the main dwelling and have some form of interdependence with it (such as a shared kitchen).
Adequate domestic garden and parking facilities cannot be accommodated at this site.
The proposal will have a detrimental effect on the legitimate enjoyment of neighbouring residences. It is likely that there will be a loss of light from such an overbearing development, casting into shadow neighbouring amenity areas.
By being built tight against the boundary hedge, there is no capacity for maintenance and decoration of the side wall and launders. In addition, footings to the side wall cannot be provided without excavating beyond the site perimeter, undermining the boundary wall.
The design lacks thought and would be out of keeping and detrimental to the existing overall street scene.
Proposal: Conversion of existing conservatory and store, replacement roof, forming new kitchen dining accommodation
Location: Fairview Farm Pennance Road Lanner TR16 5TF
Applicant: Mr Simon Vaughan
Resolved: Council supports this application
Mr Rob Lambourne – ‘5 square metres’– advice regarding measurement and associated regulations.
Mr Chris Brough – advising Council that he did not intend to pursue the installation of a driveway option. However, consideration was being given to the erection of a conservatory at the rear of the property and further advice was sought. Council advised that further enquiry should be referred to Cornwall Council as the local planning authority.
PL18/54: Decision notices:
Applicant: Mr And Mrs P Richards
Location: 4 Lanner Green Lanner TR16 6DQ
Proposal: Proposed sun room
PL18/55: Enforcement Reports:
In line with the request of the Local Authority Council moved to closed session and enforcement reports were discussed.
PL18/56: Any other planning matters at the discretion of the Chairman.
Cllr Wood updated Council on the progress of the NDP. No further information had been received from Sarah Furley, NDP or the affordable homes officer. Adjusted figures determining the required number of affordable homes had been requested for a considerable time and promised some three months previously. Rather than delay the submission of the final NDP the steering committee had decided to include current figures available within the plan.
The draft plan has been proof read by two volunteers. Council expressed sincere thanks to Mrs. Lambourne and Mr Langford for undertaking this painstaking task. Queries raised would now be considered and alterations made where appropriate.
Code of Conduct training
The Clerk presented information by power point to inform/remind Councillors of the regulations and requirements of the code under which they serve. It was hoped this would offer a useful reminder particularly in relation to protocol when speaking at meetings. Cllr Marshall thanked the Clerk for her efforts and delivery of the presentation.
PL18/57: To consider acceptance of amended policies and procedures to meet the requirements of the GDPR legislation to be introduced on 25th May 2018.
The Clerk had previously circulated information and draft policies to Members. This information was also held on the members area of the website and could be readily accessed by Councillors. Resolved: some minor alterations may be required and policies may be adjusted to more closely match the preferred style of Council but the proposed policies were approved by Council and would be adopted and displayed on the public area of the website.
Council were advised that in order to meet data storage regulations all files had been carefully reviewed and appropriately destroyed/archived. The project to create a full set of digital records continued.
PL18/58: Confidential Matters:
Council moved to closed session where members of the public were excluded, and confidential matters were discussed.
There being no other business the meeting closed at 8.53 pm.
