Application for 75 affordable dwellings at Nansloe, Helston is given conditional approval
The application for 75 affordable dwellings on pasture near the Bulwark Estate was given conditional approve by the West Planning Committee of Cornwall Council. A conditional approve is where the principle of development is accepted, but further works and details need to be sorted prior to full permission is given. Councillors voted eight in favour, four against and there was one abstention.
The applicants, Coastline Housing has three-months to complete this work, which includes the Section 106, and the Deed of Easement to name a couple of points. If these is not completed within three-months, then the application is refused.
For those following the application, the Deed of Easement happened because of the strong objection by the MOD and with this Deed, the MOD withdrew its objection. Highways did not objection to the plan. Nansloe Academy, which had major concerns about the access, withdrew their objection after an agreement has been reached between Coastline and the School. Basically, in short, the school gets land for a car park, money to build the car park and will work with the developers to make sure the drop-off point is safe.
This left only Helston Town Council and 26 residents objecting to the plan. One of Helston TC objections was on highway safety and supporting the schools concern. However, that no longer stands as the School’s objection had been removed.
If the plans are given final approval, the area of Bulwark will receive £22k for open space provision. Those people living in Helston will be given priority for these homes.
