Property description

A DETACHED FORMER COACH HOUSE WITH PLANNING CONSENT FOR REDEVELOPMENT

An unusual building located on the edge of the village and with detailed planning consent for its demolition and construction of a new two bedroom detached dwelling purposely designed to reflect the character and style of the original structure.
Directly adjoining farmland and with beautiful unobstructed views in a westerly direction over a wide panorama of countryside.

General Remarks And Location - This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a building plot in this specific geographic location. The land presently comprises a tall structure built in the early 20th century to accommodate the local bus and is somewhat iconic in its design with a central core flanked by lean-to wings on either side. Planning consent has been granted to demolish the building and erect a new two storey dwelling to reflect the theme and form of the existing structure, and which is both contemporary and stylish in its arrangement of accommodation. On the ground floor there will be a large open plan living space, part of which will be open to the full two storey height and with the west elevation mostly in glass to maximise light and the outstanding countryside views. There is also to be an en-suite bedroom on the ground floor as well as a spacious master bedroom on the first floor approached from a galleried landing and with its own en-suite. A car port is to be integral with the structure. The overall floor area is estimated to be 926 sq ft (86 sq m).

The Old Coach Garage is tucked away off Tregassick Road which is part of the main thoroughfare leading through the village of Gerrans towards St Anthony. The building stands to the rear of the houses fronting Tregassick Road and is approached by a driveway which forms part of the freehold title but with rights of way over the same for the two adjoining houses.

The village of Gerrans and the neighbouring Portscatho between them offer a wide range of shops, two public houses, a social club, galleries, post office, a primary school, a butcher and even a doctors surgery. Gerrans is situated approximately 5 miles from the village of St Mawes which has a regular foot passenger ferry service to Falmouth and is approximatley 16 miles from the cathedral city of Truro by road where a mainline railway provides a direct service to London Paddington. Sailing facilities and a boat yard are approximately one mile away. There are a variety of beaches in the area, coastal and inland walks most of which are owned and protected by the National Trust. The nearby King Harry ferry provides a convenient and scenic route to Truro and Falmouth.

Planning Consent - A "Grant of Conditional Planning Consent" was granted by Cornwall Council (Application Number PA19/02004) on the 23rd May 2019. A full copy of the planning decision is available from the Agents but the conditions applicable are as follows:

1 The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of 3 years from the date of this permission. Reason: In accordance with the requirements of Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended by Section 51 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004).

2 The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the plans listed below under the heading "Plans Referred to in Consideration of this Application". Reason: For the avoidance of doubt and in the interests of proper planning.

3 No development, including demolition of the existing coach garage structure shall take place until a Construction Traffic Management Plan and programme of works has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The approved Plan shall be adhered to throughout the construction period. The Plan shall provide for:
i) construction vehicle details (number, size and type);
ii) vehicular routes and delivery hours;
iii) the parking of vehicles of site operatives and visitors
iv) loading and unloading of plant and materials
v) storage of plant and materials used in constructing of the development;
vi) wheel washing facilities;
vii) measures to control the emission of dust and dirt during construction; and
viii) hours of working on site.
Reason: In the interests of maintaining a safe and efficient highway network and in accordance with the aims and intentions of paragraph 108 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2019 and Policies 12, 13 and 27 of the Cornwall Local Plan Strategic Policies 2010-2030 and Policy GP2 of the Roseland Neighbourhood Development Plan 2015-2030. This pre-commencement condition is considered necessary in order to ensure that a strategy is agreed at the outset of the development process to ensure that traffic generated by the scheme and associated works are respectful of the receiving context.

4 No development shall commence until an assessment of the risks posed by any contamination shall have been submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority. This assessment must be undertaken by a suitably qualified contaminated land practitioner, in accordance with British Standard BS 10175: Investigation of potentially contaminated sites - Code of Practice and the Environment Agency's Model Procedures for the Management of Land Contamination (CLR 11) (or equivalent British Standard and Model Procedures if replaced), and shall assess any contamination on the site, whether or not it originates on the site. The assessment shall include:
a) a survey of the extent, scale and nature of contamination;
b) the potential risks to:
o human health;
o property (existing or proposed) including buildings, crops, livestock, pets,
woodland and service lines and pipes;
o adjoining land;
o ground waters and surface waters;
o ecological systems; and
o archaeological sites and ancient monuments.
Reason: To ensure that the health risks from land contamination to the future users of the land and neighbouring land are minimised, together with those to controlled waters, property and ecological systems, and to ensure that the development can be carried out safely without unacceptable risks to workers, neighbours and other offsite receptors in accordance with the aims and intentions of the National Planning Policy Framework 2019 with specific reference to paragraphs 178, 179 and 180 and Policy 16 of the Cornwall Local Plan Strategic Policies 2010 - 2030, Adopted November 2016. A pre-commencement condition is required in this case because it is essential to establish before any works takes place the nature and extent of any ground contamination in order to safeguard the health of workers taking part in the development of the site and to ensure the appropriate design and subsequent safe occupation of the development.

5 No development shall take place where (following the risk assessment) land affected by contamination is found which poses risks identified as unacceptable in the risk assessment, until a detailed remediation scheme shall have been submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority. The scheme shall include an appraisal of remediation options, identification of the preferred option(s), the proposed remediation objectives and remediation criteria, and a description and programme of the works to be undertaken including the verification plan. The remediation scheme shall be sufficiently detailed and thorough to ensure that upon completion the site will not qualify as contaminated land under Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 in relation to its intended use. Reason: To ensure that the health risks from land contamination to the future users of the land and neighbouring land are minimised, together with those to controlled waters, property and ecological systems, and to ensure that the development can be carried out safely without unacceptable risks to workers, neighbours and other offsite receptors in accordance with the aims and intentions of the National Planning Policy Framework 2019 with specific reference to paragraphs 178, 179 and 180 and Policy 16 of the Cornwall Local Plan
Strategic Policies 2010 - 2030, Adopted November 2016.
A pre-commencement condition is required in this case because it is essential to establish before any works takes place the nature and extent of any ground contamination in order to safeguard the health of workers taking part in the development of the site and to ensure the appropriate design and subsequent safe occupation of the development.

6 The approved remediation scheme in condition(5) shall be carried out and upon completion a verification report by a suitably qualified contaminated land practitioner shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority before the development is occupied. Reason: To ensure that the health risks from land contamination to the future users of the land and neighbouring land are minimised, together with those to controlled waters, property and ecological systems, and to ensure that the development can be carried out safely without unacceptable risks to workers, neighbours and other offsite receptors in accordance with the aims and intentions of the National Planning Policy Framework 2012 with specific reference to paragraphs 178, 179 and 180 and Policy 16 of the Cornwall Local Plan Strategic Policies 2010 - 2030, Adopted November 2016.
