Upton residents object to new development plans

A planning application has been submitted to Cornwall Council for the demolition of an existing dwelling house and garage for its redevelopment into nine apartments and a penthouse, at Serendah, Upton, near Bude. The site plan is here. Submitted by Karen Fitz-Hugh, the plans have been drawn up by the Bazeley Partnership based at Efford. Locals claim that no attempts have been made to consult with the local community on the plans, and have highlighted a number of concerns relating to the scale of the building, and traffic.

One objector mentions that:

The proposed development is clearly over-bearing, out-of-scale and out of character in terms of its appearance compared with existing development in the vicinity. It is unacceptably high density and over-development of the site, involves loss of garden land and adversely affects the open aspect of the neighbourhood. The visual impact of the development is significant with a detrimental effect on the character of the local area. Additionally, the loss of existing views from neighbouring properties would adversely affect the residential amenity of neighbouring owners.

There are not yet any comments in favour of the proposed development. The deadline for comments is 31st January, so time is quite short, whatever your views. The website link is here. Application number is: PA17/12124. The house, valued at £499,950 was sold in 2017.
