MORE than 30 letters have been sent to Cornwall Council urging it to reject a plan to build a home on a parcel of recreational land in Truro.

A Camborne man wants to build a three-bedroom home with parking at David Penhaligon Way.

He bought the amenity land, which includes a monkey puzzle tree, from Cornwall Council for £8,000 in September last year.

Opponents of the plan say if it were to be approved the scheme would worsen what is already a dangerous blind road junction, the plot is too small for a detached house, car space and garden and that it is designated as a public open space.

The deadine for local consultation has now expired and a decision is expected by February 7.
