Situ8 achieved planning permission for the development of 16 houses/flats on land behind Polmear Parc in Par. The scheme offers 50% affordable and 50% open market homes, delivered on a cross subsidised basis.
Despite the objections of the Parish Council and local opposition, the planning committee saw sense and approved this proposal. Situ8 have worked for 2 years to bring the scheme forward with the project architects, Inhaus Designs, addressing all of the issues raised throughout the process. We had support from the Highways Department, South West Water, Environment Agency, Archaeology Unit and English Nature. Whilst we are thrilled that we had the support of the planning committee members, we are somewhat disappointed that we couldn’t work successfully in partnership with Par and Tywardreath Parish Council to help provide much needed housing, as identified in a local housing needs survey.
