Planning permission was turned down a few months ago for the open area of land beween 40 and 42 Carrine Road after I intervened. No further application has been made so far.
However, last week part of this land was fenced off. I am afraid that my guess is that the owner is gearing up to make another application and is trying to make the land look more like a development site.
I have alerted Cornwall Council but as the fence is not much more than 1 metre high approx there may be little we can do about it.
I have asked Truro City Council to put in a bid to make the land a community asset. I am afraid that only means they would get the option to buy it if it is put up for sale but it would allow public debate about this open space.
Carrick District Council had the opportunity to adopt it as open space some years ago but chose not to.
I will do what I can to preserve it.
