on Thursday 15th February, after much lobbying by all, the Strategic Planning Committee voted 12-2 in favour of Penvose Student Village.

I think that they chose they right decision –  on the basis of taking the heat away from Falmouth Town, I am aware that there’s that phrase “be careful what you wish for”, the unforseen consequences etc etc, but it may help reduce the threat of PBSA sites in town.



Mark Dawes, from CAD Architects, straight away had the following statement:

“We would like to thank Save Our Falmouth, Save Kernick Industrial Estate, Smithick Ward Residents Association, Falmouth Town Council and other groups for their strong support, and we look forward to working with them as we bring the scheme to fruition.

“We have worked hard to engage with the local community to understand the issues around housing and student numbers, which enabled us to provide a viable solution, so to get overwhelming support from the councillors was fantastic.”


Comments could also be useful, and I will publish relevant ones.
