Proposal : Pre application advice for a dwelling
Location : Barwick Green Treviskey Lanner Redruth Cornwall TR16 6AT

Application : PA19/01964/PreApp
Proposal : Pre-application advice for construction of 4 family homes (houses) on the site of the ‘lower meadow’ at Hope Farm. These could include bungalows if that is more desirable and the conversion of a partially built barn into a dwelling
Location : Hope Farm Pennance Road Lanner Redruth TR16 5TQ
Applicant : Mr Keith Allen

Council noted this application. Since the development proposal lies outside of the settlement boundary as defined in the Lanner NDP, in the event of submission of a full application, Council would not support this application.

PL19/102: To consider the following Applications:

Application: PA19/05429
Proposal: Non-material amendment in respect of approval PA18/09786- Slightly increase the length of the building by 900mm
Location: Chy Lowen Access To Tresavean Farm Tresavean Lanner
Applicant: Colin Gordon
Resolved: Council offer NO OBJECTION to this proposal

Application: PA19/05119
Proposal: Conversion and Extension to existing building and construction of garage and stable building
Location: Penventon Quarry Treviskey Lanner
Applicant: Mr & Mrs Platt
Resolved: Council SUPPORT this application.

Application: PA19/06018
Proposal: Formation of field shelter
Location: West Trevarth Farm West Trevarth Lanner
Applicant: Mr J Andrew
Resolved: Council SUPPORTS this application but makes the following observations based on requirements and recommendations from AHDB (Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board) and Red Tractor Assurance Standards:

The recommended maximum building depth for a mono pitch roof is 9m (this building is 10.6m) beyond which a dual pitch roof should be employed to assist updraught and prevent areas of stagnant air. This is for animal health and, in particular, to help prevent pneumonia in calves.

If the shelter is to be used for winter housing, a fresh water supply should be provided as reliance on collecting rainwater will likely prove insufficient.
The application says rainwater will be taken to soak away but applicant says to water butt. This requires clarification.

Without an apron to the front of the building there is a high risk of persistent poached ground in the doorways (with health risk to cattle’s feet) and/or soil compaction depending on weather and usage.

The size of the shelter (193 m2) provides significantly more space than the minimum of 4.9m2 per cow. Any supplementary use, say for storage, should not be associated with retail sales.

The roof of the building should be of grey Big 6 sheets to match existing buildings and not green as stated on the application form.

Application: PA19/06021
Proposal: Formation of Polytunnel
Location: West Trevarth Farm West Trevarth Lanner
Applicant: Mr J Andrew
Resolved: Council SUPPORT this application.

Application: PA19/02216
Proposal: Alterations to existing ancillary building including replacement of mono pitch roof with dual pitch, new first floor balcony and changes to external finishes. Retention of first floor living ancillary accommodation to main dwelling.
Location: Tresavean Farm Cottage Tresavean Lanner Redruth
Applicant: Mr And Mrs Forrester
Resolved: To ratify decision following CC Protocol – Council agree with the Planning Officer and note minor alterations in respect of exterior finish.
