Please Refuse Further Development on St Agnes Beacon!
This petition had 4,233 supporters
I am petitioning you with a very heavy heart as we are AGAIN fighting to protect our beloved Beacon in St Agnes from further development.
As many of you may be aware St Agnes Beacon was affected by a large gorse fire in June 2017 where "approximately six hectares" of beautiful wild countryside was destroyed.
As this wasn't enough it is UNDER THREAT AGAIN by the same developer who wants to build more holiday homes. This is the same developer that we fought in 2015 as a local community and successfully stopped his proposed development of 9 additional holiday homes on St Agnes Beacon.
It was a very emotional and we fought a very hard campaign.
The previous development was refused by the local Parish Council, the planning department and then at appeal. We were delighted with the outcome, however I think we knew deep in our hearts this wouldn't be the end of it and we were right!
We have been fighting for over 20 years to stop unscrupulous exploitation of this beautiful area which is the subject of many designations:
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Site of Special Scientific Interest
World Heritage Coast
The developer has again put in an application on the same site. This time he wants 2 large holiday homes. These homes are twice the size of the existing units and again are on the small agricultural field on the lower slopes of the Beacon.
I am therefore again asking for your support...
You can view the application on the Cornwall Council Portal here: http://planning.cornwall.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=details&keyVal=ORA89WFGHML00
The reference for the development is here - PA17/05446
We need individual comments on the planning portal as well as signatures and we can provide a template letter if needed.
Please can you sign this petition and help us get this stopped again.
