Cornwall Council Comments – I have visited the above property, viewed the structure internally and taken measurements, upon returning to the office a history search was carried out which did not reveal that permitted development rights have been removed from this property, in light of this I can confirm that the wooden structure is permitted under Class E of the Town and Country (General Permitted Development) Order 2015 as such does not require planning consent. In light of this information I can confirm that my file on this matter has been closed accordingly.
To consider any planning correspondence –
A discussion took place about planting schemes on applications, as concern was raised that this is not always being adhered to. Applications are being altered as non-material amendments and therefore plans are changing from what Councillors have commented on and there is no enforcement possible.
