Holiday let fails to win over council

PLANS to build an "ugly" holiday let property at St Keverne are to be opposed by the parish council.

The proposed building at Trevallack was described as looking "like an alien being" in the landscape.

The application is for the demolition of redundant agricultural buildings and their replacement with a holiday let.

At Thursday's St Keverne Parish Council meeting members initially felt they should support the move, although one said: "I regret the fact they are so ugly."

Councillor Roger Richards said: "There is nothing wrong with the proposal but I don't know why such a design of building should be right in the middle of the country. It should be something more in-keeping."

But Councillor David Lambrick argued that the council did not have to support the proposal.

Councillor Tony Carey said there were already precedents for that sort of building, to which Mr Lambrick replied: "But why does it have to be done again?"

Chairman Russell Peters also thought the design "totally unacceptable" but Councillor Sarah Lyne said: "I quite like the design myself, I think it is really nice."

Her's was the only comment in support and the council agreed to object to the plan.
