PLANS to transform a historic estate could be scuppered after council officers recommended refusal of two major schemes.
The Killiow Estate near Playing Place has submitted plans to build a 150-metre dry ski slope with a nursery slope, a clubhouse and parking for 72 cars, and separate plans for a 55-space caravan touring park.
Both proposals will be considered at a planning committee meeting on Monday at 2pm at the council offices at Penwinnick Road, St Austell.
Planning officers have recommended refusal of both schemes due to "insufficient information to demonstrate whether or not the development would have an adverse impact on heritage assets of acknowledged importance, including their setting".
More than 50 people have commented on both sides on Cornwall Council's planning website.
Graham Stokes wrote: "This is an application that has so many merits and benefits for Cornwall, for Truro, for the staff that work at Killiow, the new people to be employed at Killiow and for all the people in Cornwall that could benefit from the facility."
However, Peter Boggia wrote: "The Killiow Estate is a beautiful heritage area, and one which would be damaged by the inclusion of a modern dry ski slope. I have nothing against Killiow Estate wanting to establish a ski slope, but believe there will be alternate brownfield sites elsewhere which would be more appropriate for such a development."
