Cornwall Council receives dozens of planning applications every week seeking permission for everything from cutting down trees to building new housing estates. All applications are submitted to the council and are then validated before being published by the council on its planning portal.
Here you can find details of all planning applications which have been submitted or decided by the council. For those applications yet to be decided members of the public can also submit their comments about the proposals – whether you are in support or opposition.

We have picked out some of the more interesting applications from more than 100 which have been validated by Cornwall Council in the last week.
Aparthotel for Carbis Bay
Plans have been submitted for six aparthotel apartments on a site in Carbis Bay in Beach Road overlooking Porthrepta Beach.
Close to the Carbis Bay Hotel, a design and access statement submitted with the application states that there is a demand for more holiday accommodation in the area. It says that the development would “create more support for local businesses and enhance tourist need”.
There have been previous applications for the site and pre-application submissions to the council which have led to the new proposals being scaled down from what was originally proposed. The proposals are now for a two-storey building with “rooftop stair and lift glass access to communal terraces and pools that serve all of the apart-hotel”.

New classrooms at Callywith College
A planning application has been submitted to Cornwall Council by Callywith College which wants to replace a temporary classroom building with permanent facilities. The college in Bodmin, which opened in September 2017, initially had three buildings to provide core teaching spaces with an additional temporary classroom building to meet the needs of student numbers.
Now the college wants to replace the single-storey temporary building with a new two-storey permanent facility which will help the college meet its capacity requirement of 1,550 students.
The new building – which would be known as the Kilmar Building – would be located on the site of the existing temporary building on the north west boundary of the site. The application explains that this was also the location of overspill parking which was not fully utilised.
The Kilmar Building would provide facilities for 350 students and 30 members of staff with 13 general teaching rooms along with a refectory, offices and learning resource centre. There will be wide corridors to provide locker spaces and toilet facilities installed.

Replacement apartments in Newquay
Verto Homes Ltd is seeking planning permission to demolish seven flats in Newquay and replace them with 10 new residential apartments. The application is for a site known as Ocean Reach in Esplanade Road.
The applicants claim to be “the UK’s first housebuilder to specialise in the design, build and sale of Zero Carbon Smart Homes”. Under the proposals the new apartment building would have nine two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment.
A design and access statement submitted with the application explains: “It is proposed that the current buildings are largely dilapidated, will be demolished and replaced with a single four-storey high apartment building containing 10 residential units.
“As with Verto’s other developments within the town, the new building will be of a contemporary architectural design and will be constructed to an extremely highly sustainable standard using Verto’s Zero Carbon Smart Home technology, to ensure a fully Zero Carbon specification.”
