This is so much more than your ‘average’ development opportunity, because the potential for a quite major uplift over the 0.16 hectare (0.41 acres) of land in build-maximisation terms is genuinely glaring.

The main reason is that the extent of land enjoying the current consent has been substantially added to for the sale. This opens up the door to possible increased numbers as well as enhanced design and layout to include, perhaps, detachment of the three currently consented terraced new-build homes, all of which individually and collectively would be materially beneficial to value.

Naturally any alterations to the approved scheme, including demolition of the existing building followed by a new-build extension of the adjoining terrace, rather than conversion, would be subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.

If you’re a builder/developer keen to spend your money wisely, this could be the one.


Planning Permission and a value-adding non-material amendment have been granted by Cornwall Council under respectively ref: PA15/09161, dated 21st October 2016, for “Conversion of building into three two-bedroom residential units, and the erection of two, three-bedroom and one, two-bedroom residential units to the rear of the existing property (Demolish rear single and two storey sections of the existing building)” and ref: PA17/00567 dated 10th February 2017 for “Non-material amendment (1) for modification of the internal layouts of plots 4, 5 and 6, altering the size of the dwellings from three, two-bedroom houses to two, three-bedroom and one, two-bedroom house, whilst retaining the original external facades in respect of decision notice PA15/09161”, subject to conditions.

A copy of the Planning Consent and proposed plans will be available for download from the Clive Emson website or via Cornwall Council’s website.

Proposed Accommodation

The existing amended consent is for two, three-bedroom and one, two-bedroom cottages converted out of the existing building and three new-builds on land adjoining in the form of two, three bedroom houses and one with two bedrooms.

To precis, the scheme currently approved is for a total of six dwellings in the form of four that have three bedrooms and two more, each with two bedrooms.


Each dwelling is shown as having garden and off-street parking.
