We are opposing plans which would suburbanise the small rural community of Trevone, near Padstow on the north coast of Cornwall. An application from First Step Homes to erect 15 dwellings at Trevone Farm comes before the planning committee on 9 November.
This development will be an eyesore, a suburban excrescence in open country.
There is a popular public footpath running alongside the site, where walkers can enjoy a feeling of peace and freedom in open country, as is appropriate in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a severe risk that the development would lead to the path being fenced in on both sides, making it unpleasant and claustrophobic for walkers.
At present walkers have lovely open views from this path but if the development goes ahead they will be looking at rows of houses.
The plans conflict with the policies for the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Local Plan, among others. This is the wrong place for this development.
