Perranuthnoe Parish Council objects to this application. On the following grounds:

It breaches the original  planning  conditions.

Which state/show that this dwelling would have the same access route, driveway as both the adjacent dwellings. It is clear that the enlarged opening was approved to be accessed via the approved driveway for the other two houses thus there is no justification or need for such an enlargement access within the site.
