Council planning officers say yes to Premier Inn in Falmouth: POLL

This is The West Country: Council planning officers say yes to Premier Inn in Falmouth: POLL Council planning officers say yes to Premier Inn in Falmouth: POLL

A second bid to build a Premier Inn on a car park in Falmouth has been backed by Cornwall Council planning officers.

Fresh plans for a hotel on land near Events Square in Falmouth were submitted in November and have already prompted a wave of protest from local residents and hoteliers.

New Cornwall Development’s original proposal for a 74 bedroom Premier Inn on the site of the Discovery Quay car park was refused at appeal in August when the planning inspector claimed it would harm the living conditions of the occupiers of apartments 3, 4 and 5, Campbeltown Way through significant loss of outlook.

The new application is for a 68 bedroom hotel and restaurant with seven parking spaces and attempts to address the inspector’s objection.

The development would lead to the loss of 21 pay and display car park spaces and protestors say it will increase demand on those remaining.

This has been done by “significantly” reducing the overall height of the eastern wing by staggering each storey to mitigate the impact on the adjoining residential properties along Campbeltown Way.

In the design and access statement accompanying the application, it says: “The design development of this proposal follows extensive and productive consultation not only with the end user, but also with local residents and businesses, the town council and Cornwall Council planning authority and the comments received has led to an extensive redesign of the proposal to reflect the views and advice given.”

The scheme has now been given conditional approval, with Cornwall Council’s central sub-area planning committee due to meet on Monday.

The recomendation is that: "Delegated authority to be granted to the Head of Planning and Regeneration to approve the application subject to the conditions as set out in the Report (plus any additional conditions discussed at, or brought to, the meeting) and the completion of a Section 106 to secure a financial contributions towards sustainable transport initiatives in Falmouth to a total of £63,430 and a Traffic Regulation Order in relation to delivery restriction on Campbeltown Way."

The planning officer added that: "he proposed stepped reduction in height and greater articulation of that part of the building as now proposed closest to Fisher Court are such that occupiers of the neighbouring properties would no longer have an outlook to a three storey blank wall, instead having a single storey with taller elements behind in the form of a stepped roof which in itself would be significantly less oppressive.

"The proposal is considered to be acceptable in all other respects and it is concluded
there are no other reasons to warrant a refusal of planning permission.

"It is evident from the appeal Inspector's report that the principle of this development is acceptable in this location. The assessment of the key planning issues in the Inspector’s report is considered to be relevant material and has been taken into account as part of the conclusions reached in this report.


In regards to parking, the planning officer said: "The development would lead to the loss of 21 pay and display car park spaces, however, this loss of a relatively small proportion of spaces on a site adjacent to the Grove Hill and former T.A Centre Car Parks would not add to car parking congestion to an unacceptable level."

Approximately 130 individuals have submitted letters/emails/ or online submissions objecting to the proposal.

The new application is also being opposed by the Falmouth and District Hotels’ Association. Its chairman, Shaun Davie, said: “It comes as little surprise to us that revised plans have been submitted by New Cornwall Developments again and that although the size of the building has been addressed, we see the changes indicated are insignificant and little has changed. We do not object to such competition and development for our town should be welcomed. Yet, such an oversized hotel especially so close to sites of historical importance and residential properties does not fit into the centre of our unique town.

“Falmouth residents and our visitors wish it to remain exclusive and such an over bearing, generic building belongs sited in an out of town area as do most budget hotels in this country.”

The officer addressed competition with other hotels/guesthouses in his report, saying that the national planning framework is "explicit in that competition and choice in town centres is considered a positive thing and should be promoted. Therefore, whilst a significant volume of objections have been received in relation to this application on competition grounds or expressing opinions about the need for budget hotels and chain franchises within Falmouth. I have not attached any significant weight to this consideration within my assessment."

Falmouth town council have also refused to back the plans, saying, "the council objects to the planning application on the grounds of over-development, as a five storeys were bulky and overbearing in that location, that the development was inappropriate for the location, detrimentally affecting the character and that the traffic assessment was flawed and failed to recognise the coastal nature of the town and therefore its current and future needs in terms of traffic infrastructure, which the application failed to meet.

The planning application can be viewed in full by searching for PA13/09610 on www.cornwall.gov.uk.

So if I read this correctly the only people who want this are Council Planning and the developers. Unusual that nobody wants it!
What happened to "localism"?
Who are the council planners supposed to be working for?
Do they have their own agenda?

I think alot of Falmouth residents would like to see that area used.

Great for over-night visitors/Late rooms type customers - get visitors into the area & let Falmouth sell itself, they will return as holiday makers wanting o stay in hotels.

Unfortunately it's the vocal minority who interfere and will no doubt throw this poll too.

Uh.... am I thinking about the same Falmouth. The Falmouth that has a multitude of guest houses, self-catering accommodation and hotels already? Am I also right in thinking that Premier Inn are sleepover/commuter accommodation ie for very short term stays? Is my understanding that they will take parking spaces away and then create an even higher demand by building accommodation for short term stays who are more than likely arriving and departing by car? AND am I also right in thinking they are providing a restaurant? Right so the town, it's heritage, (because this is within a hugely historic area of town), and the overall Falmouth economy benefit from this development how??

These comments do make me laugh. Those who are opposed are putting across well articulated and valid reasons. While those who are for are not giving well articulated reasons but instead choose to mock and knock the opposed for having an opinion. I don't have a problem with something being built there providing it is in-keeping with the area, isn't working at the detriment of the surrounding businesses. Why a Premier Inn exactly when there are already plenty of Guest Houses and Hotels with vacancies? If you want to attract more holiday makers build another relevant tourist attraction and they can all stay at the accommodation already willing to welcome them.

I am appalled that approval has been given. I am a regular visitor to Falmouth, not a resident but for the life of me I cannot see why this is beneficial to this location.
It is clear that the parking issues have no resonance with planners. This area of Falmouth has long been subjected to parking restriction but this development will only make things worse. This is an extreme example of the devastation caused by the power of commercial interests.

There is plenty of parking available in Falmouth at the Quarry, but a few years back Cornwall Council changed all the road signs to point "town centre" traffic to the Maritime Museum end, presumably to favour the museum and the events square development. Changing this back or at least pointing town centre traffic to both Quarry and Maritime would help aleviate this.

Most of the year it won't be a problem but in the summer taking away a further 24 parking spaces isn't going to help.

Maybe they should have requested enough section 106 (bribe) money to build a multi-story on the TA site :)

Why have the developers not looked at the site round the corner that is supposed to be building new flats and made a bid for that? The old Admiral Nelson site. That's been empty for a while and is at the moment a blot on the landscape. It's near to the docks and town to be viable and wouldn't take away car parking by events square.

As a Falmothian born and bred I welcome this!! If you want a blot on the landscape look at the toytown development that is Port Pendennis - how many homes are lived in 365 days a year 24/7 and by locals???? Also look at the Maritime Museum a total waste of money - if viewed from the seaward side visitors cannot believe this is the museum.

This development can only bring money into the town. They are cheap and clean to stay in and allow people to spend money in the local area eg restaurants etc. I always use this type of hotel when away as the price is good and also they are always clean, comfortable with friendly staff whereas other hotels are expensive and have staff who don't care!!

As for parking spaces who can afford the car parks and in summer all traffic is directed to the park and ride/float for which the money goes to a private company ie the King Harry Ferry Company so all the nonsense about parking is rubbish!!

As someone who has lived here for over 60 odd years and was born here I want it so all you emmets etc tough!!!

To echo PipCBarnes, I notice that the opponents are not saying "we don't want a premier inn" but are saying "we don't think that this site is appropriate for a premier inn because: 1. It will be out of keeping with that area. 2. It will cause serious traffic/parking problems."
Would a supporter like to come on to this forum and say why they think that particular site IS appropriate. e.g. "1. I think that a 5 storey premier inn will architecturally enhance that area. 2. I don't believe that parking will be an issue because the planners say it won't be an issue (despite the fact that the parking information has been provided by premier inn! - and is being vigorously disputed by other parties).

Hmm to answer the above in what way is the Maritime Museum architectually enhancing this area or Port Pendennis. As for parking the Quarry is empty most of the year and most people would rather park on a road without paying. The thing is this will bring people, jobs and money to Falmouth. Most of us on the minimum wage can't afford fancy hotels and don't wish to stay in a bed and breakfast which is like staying in your mother in laws home !! We didn't want the museum nor port Pendennis but got so as I said before if u const like it tough. I was born here and have lived here for seventy years so think it gives me a right to say I want this especially as it means my relatives and family can now. Is it me without been ripped off! Family recently stayed at Greenbank Hotel in falmouth paying nearly £200 per night for a room and breakfast where noise from a function kept them awake and only did was breakfast unless.they paid over £100 for dinner for two. For the money paid they could have stayed at a premier inn for nearly two weeks. So yes it's needed desperately.

As an objective view, I do not think losing a few car-park spaces will amount to a loss of visitors, in car-parks on the Lizard and in Helston we have lost a considerable amount of car-park spaces due to permanent occupation by those from peripatetic families, but the visitor rate does not appear to have decreased.
As far as competition is concerned, this is irrelevant to planning issues, and if alternative Hotels and B&Bs offer value for money and service then they will have nothing to fear. There will always be those whose preference will be a star rated Hotel or local B&B but there are a good percentage of people that cannot afford them or would prefer an alternative. Premier Inns are charged per room not person which is ideal for families and not everyone requires breakfast on site. Out of season many B&Bs are closed and in season without advance booking many are full up, ultimately it is down to personal choice. Location may be the issue here, however, it would not be the only budget hotel to be located in a town and not on the outskirts.
