Update October 2017:

The Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) for Mylor Parish is under way – please visit www.mylorflushingplan.uk for more information and to sign up to the survey group.

It is important to have your say because, once it’s finished, the NDP will form the first level of planning law, helping planning authorities make decisions about housing and facilities, and ensuring that new developments such as building are in line with the community’s vision for the future of Mylor, Flushing and all other locations within the parish boundary on this map

This web site is for residents of Saltbox Road, Saltbox Close, Penmorvah Estate, and other locations in Mylor Bridge, Cornwall UK to share information regarding the new building development proposed for the field adjoining Saltbox Close.

Several of us are very concerned about issues arising from this proposed development, especially the extra traffic that it would generate, as Saltbox Road is already overused by non-resident traffic and is unsuitable for the existing traffic levels, let alone that generated by a proposed 32 new homes whose sole access would be from a cul-de-sac extension to Saltbox Close feeding onto Saltbox Road.

  1. I see in this week’s West Briton — Public Notices, that comments do not have to be in to Cornwall Council, until the 6th. January now. Am I correct? All very confusing.

    1. It is indeed confusing. Cornwall Council failed to display notification of the Planning App locally, so they have given an additional 21 days to comment on PA16/10635 (running from the date they get the notification notices up locally, which they haven’t as of earlier today), so yes, that should be 6th January at minimum, possibly later. Suggest joining our mailing list (requires disclosure) to discuss with other residents

  2. That’s really useful to know, Chris, thank you.

    More comments from Mylor residents and others affected are actively encouraged. I’d also like to encourage readers to express their concerns to those who will be involved in the decision making process – see here under “who to contact”.

  3. Thank you for bringing the detail of the new build to the attention of the school. We will not be able to attend the Planning Meeting scheduled for December due to school based activities including the Christmas plays.
    It is locally recognised that the school is now full in each year group. Our Planned Admission Number for each year group is 20 and so we would be full at 140 children. We currently have 147 children.
    To this end families moving into the proposed new development would not be able to admit their child to this school unless there were changes to the school site and the Local Authority Admissions policy and that does seem unlikely.

  4. Meeting on Monday 12th at 7pm in the Tremayne Hall Pope room to discuss our inputs to the PCC public meeting on 14th

    1. Reminder: Residents meeting (to discuss input to MPC Planning Meeting on Wednesday) starting tonight in under 2 hrs – Mon 12th Dec, 7pm, Pope Room, Tremayne Hall

  5. No meeting tonight (29 Nov), Bren.

    Anna (The Parish Clerk) postponed this because Cornwall Council took so long to make the Full Application public on their website (and councillors as well as the public would need time to read it). See here.

    She emailed us today saying she’d let me know as soon as she had a new date for the meeting (Full Application only became visible on CC site this morning).

    I really recommend joining our mailing list for full discussion as there’s a lot going on behind the scenes.

    1. Update to this: Parish Council Public Meeting about the Saltbox Close Planning Application is at 7pm on Wednesday 14th December at Tremayne Hall. More to follow tomorrow…
