Sanctuary Housing will not be granted permission to change a public residential car park into a private one.
Following on from my previous blog about the application by Sanctuary Housing to apply for a Stopping-up Order for the car park in Albion Rd which would turn the car park from a public car park to a private one, I can officially confirm that Cornwall Council will not be taking forward this application to the magistrate courts. Therefore, this car park will remain accessible to all residents.
I would like to thank the residents of the area, the town council and my fellow two Cornwall Councillors for the Helston area, Judith Haycock and Phil Martin for lodging their objections to this proposal. A real team effort.
This is the second time Sanctuary Housing has attempted to change this car park into a private one. I hope with this second refusal, Sanctuary Housing will get the message this change of use is not wanted.
