Responses from the Second Public Meeting on the Proposals for Shrubberies Hill, Porthleven
I now have the feedback from the second public meeting on the proposals for a mixed-use site of local needs and open market that could be built on land adjacent Shrubberies Hill, Porthleven. To refresh, the details of the first consultation event is HERE.
The number of residents who attended the second consultation was 89 (signed the visitors book). Out of those attended, 54 provided feedback and here are those views on the revised proposals:
- Supportive – 10 (18.5%)
- Support but with reservations – 10 (18.5%)
- Against – 31 (57.4%)
- Unsure – 3 (5.6%)
Combining the two events, a total of 229 residents attended. Out of that figure, 33 residents attended both events and 14 of these left feedback on both occasions. These people’s view did not show a shift in opinion after seeing the revised proposals.
If you combine the two consultation results* the results are:
- Total responses – 139
- Supportive – 23 (16.54%)
- Supportive but with reservations – 32 (23.2%)
- Against – 69 (49.64%)
- Unsure – 15 (10.8%)
Out of all the views and comments received, 50% of the feedback highlighted traffic, highways and access as a concern. Though again 50% of respondents felt that homes should be provided to local people at an affordable price. I feel if any plan is submitted, the highway/access issue must be addressed.
*Those who gave feedback twice only the recent view has been used.
