26. Planning Applications
PA21/05274 – 11A Polwithen Road, Penryn
Construction of 2 residential dwellings and associated works.
Councillor Ronchetti left the meeting room and did not take part in any discussions regarding the application.
RESOLVED that the Town Council OBJECTS to the application. The Council takes into the account the issues raised by the neighbour in regard to over-shadowing of the next door property and the design is also uncharacteristic to the street scene.
Proposed by Councillor Widdon and seconded by Councillor May.
Councillor Ronchetti returned to the meeting after the discussion.
PA21/02987 – 111 Little Oaks, Penryn
Raise existing decking area. Extend existing fencing to length of the new extended patio
RESOLVED that the Town Council OBJECTS to the application. The layout of the decking is far too big for the site and the Council also recognises the lack of privacy this would afford to the neighbouring property.
Proposed by Councillor Widdon and seconded by Councillor Kirby
27. Decision Notices
The list of decision notices received since the last meeting were noted.
28. Woodland Burials
The meeting discussed the opportunity whether to consider having a woodland burial site in Penryn.

Proposed by Councillor Widdon and seconded by Councillor Grant.
29. 20s Plenty for Us
The meeting discussed whether to opt in to the campaign ‘20s Plenty for Us’.
During a lengthy discussion the following was highlighted:
- There have previously been many discussions in regard to speed limits in the town
- Concerns regarding how the restricted speed limit would be enforced
- Councillor Widdon reported that there could be funding made available from Cornwall Council for future traffic calming measures
- People will feel safer walking and less likely to use their cars
RESOLVED that a 20mph speed limit would be beneficial and safer for residents on some streets in the town but not to opt in to the ’20s Plenty Campaign’ at the present time.
Proposed by Councillor May and seconded by Councillor Widdon.
