  Application PA22/06562

Proposal Demolition & Replacement of Existing Chalet & Associated Works

Location The Chalet Boat Cove Lane Perranuthnoe Cornwall

Applicant Mr A De Unger Grid Ref 153610 / 29271

It was proposed, seconded and unanimously agreed that Perranuthnoe Parish Council strongly objects to this planning application on the following grounds:

1.The negative impact which the proposed replacement building would have on the landscape character and natural scenic beauty of the open countryside in this undeveloped coastal area in the AONB.

2: The implications of the increased size, living space, and amenities of the proposed replacement building for fundamentally changing the status of this structure in planning terms, from one with basic amenities which the 2021 Appeal described as being ‘more akin to that of a camping barn or bothy’, suitable for ‘occasional overnight stays’ to a structure which in planning terms could be considered a ‘dwelling house’ due to the fact that it would be deemed to ‘afford to those who use it, the facilities required for day-to-day private domestic existence’.

3: The extent to which the proposed development contravenes county, national and AONB planning policies which is the basis on which the Planning Dept should make its decision.

4: The application states there are no grounds to suspect contamination on the site. Given that there is a mine shaft immediately adjacent the site, a full contamination survey should be mandatory.

Specifically, the council objects to the:

Height and Footprint (should be no bigger, ref AONB recommendations, emerging NDP), Amount of glazing (design, Dark Skies buffer zone), change of status from “camping barn” to “dwelling house”.

NDP Briefing – Chair of the Steering Group – Mr A. Moore

Mr Moore gave an update on the Neighbourhood Plan following the closure of Regulation 16 process.

The Parish Council discussed the Regulation 16 comments and agreed the Parish Council response.

Mr Moore then informed the council an examiner had been appointed by Cornwall Council and we would await communication with them.

Cllr Sharp thanked Mr Moore and the steering group for their continued hard work which was voluntarily in helping produce the Perranuthnoe Neighbourhood Plan.   

08/22/10 Clerks Report

The Clerk informed the Parish Council that the IT support package for the Clerk and Councillors with Alchemy Systems (Western) Ltd was about to expire. Clerk would like to renew the services and renew the agreement which would be paid on direct debit.

It was proposed, seconded and agreed unanimously agreed that Perranuthnoe Parish Council retain the service agreement with Alchemy Ltd. 

08/22/11 Chairmans Report

Congratulations must go to the Charter Fair Committee on a successful fair day.

The hot weather has seen a number of warnings from the fire and rescue services regarding the use of disposable BBQs and the lighting of bonfires. There really is no excuse for bonfires given that we have a green recycling service provided by Cornwall Council and Biffa. The Parish Council would encourage residents to use that kerbside service.

Despite numerous reminders, we are still waiting for the Highways Management Plans to be put out for public consultation. I am told this will be in September.

We are also waiting to hear of the progress on the footpath between Goldsithney and Marazion.

There are still individuals parking on the DYLs in the village, enforcement officers have been asked to increase their visits to check on these as the lines are there for a reason and parking on them isn’t one of them.

A series of meetings to review the proposed changes to the Community Network Panels are still in progress. One is scheduled for this Wednesday and a further one in September. Once these have been negotiated with Cornwall Council then they will go out for wider consultation.

08/22/12 County Councillors Report  from Cllr. Sherfield -Wong

Apologies for not attending this evening. I will see you at the next meeting in September.

In addition, I will be holding a meeting once a month with all of the Parish and Town Councils in my patch, the first will be 15th September. All are welcome to come and I will be sending out more details shortly.

I would appreciate the views of Parish Councillors on having a Mayor of Cornwall. I am personally against the idea.

Update on EN22/00710 – Highfield, East Rosudgeon, Penzance, Cornwall, TR20 9PN – Alleged non-compliance with an Enforcement Notice served under EN20/00956

As you may be aware there is a civil litigation case between the lender and mortgagee which has been ongoing for some considerable time and has yet to be subject to any judgement.

With the matter before the civil courts and the exact position of landownership uncertain, I have asked for legal advice regarding the next steps, particularly in terms of the Code for Crown Prosecutors and the Public Interest Stage of the Full Code Test.  I am awaiting the advice from our colleagues in Legal. 



Cllrs Reports:

Cllr Collins- The new paint for the telephone box in Perranuthnoe had arrived.

 Cllr Linton – Wanted to know who was responsible for the public footpaths.

Primarily it is the owner of the land who is responsible for the upkeep of the footpath/s. If a farmer or person is renting land, then they are responsible for maintaining it. The Parish Council is responsible for any stiles. Cllr Linton wanted to know was there any news on the traffic management plans for Perranuthnoe. Unfortunately, we are in the hands of Cornwall Council who seem to be taking an awfully long time to get to the next stage which is the public consultation. Clerk and Chairman will keep pursuing the matter.

Cllr Sharp – reported two issues with the coastal footpath at Perranuthnoe.

1)    It was being blocked on a daily basis by cars parking in the car park overflow field. Cllrs had informed the landowner responsible.

2)    Horse riding on the coast path, the same offender a local parishioner was still riding his horse on the coastal path early in the morning. The matter should be reported to the Countryside Access Officer at Cornwall Council.

He had also received a complaint that the car park was dirty with litter, even though a large bin is provided in the carpark for people to deposit their waste.  Councillors discussed and arranged a working party amongst themselves to eliminate the problem.

 Cllr. Griffiths. – had received a disappointing update from Cornwall Council in which they agree to disagree with him. This was in relation to the report he had submitted last month on the overgrown footpath from Primrose Lane to Meadow View, in his opinion it should be cut back.




Noticeboards – Ongoing looking into replacing current Parish noticeboards.

Inclusive Playground Equipment – although research had been done by Cllr Griffiths on this subject. It was decided not to pursue further the reason being two-fold 1) how often would it be used and 2) the space required to site it.

Bus Stop in Fore Street & Bus Stop at Daffodil Fields same side of the road – These bus stops are obsolete and not used by any routes. No busses come through this part of Fore Street. It is misleading as people have been seen waiting here. Cllr Griffiths thinks that the bus companies should be contacted to confirm the stops are not being used and the signs should be removed. No timetables are displayed at either stop and there is no board either for them to go in.



Correspondence, telephone calls etc.
