The council website does not accept comments on pre-planning applications.
Do you have concerns? - is there adequate parking? Prefer a pitched roof design? Is the building too close to it's neighbours? Is it too high?
Please contact Jason Clark at DCA Public Relations in Bodmin with any comments or with any questions. E: [email protected]

Please include with your feedback:
If plans were to change in the future, support for new build student accommodation should not be given on this site.
The Cornwall Local Plan Site Allocations Development Document identifies more than adequate provision near to the Tremough Campus in Penryn and Policy HMO3 in the emerging Neighbourhood Plan for Falmouth reflects this.

Falmouth Town Council  Planning Proposal - Comment Date: Tue 22 Nov 2016
Refuse due to over development and over massing, insufficient parking, detrimental impact on the area which is unneighbourly and the Council had highway concerns as the site is at a dangerous junction onto Dracaena Avenue. 

The Council also commented that the application sought to pre-empt the emerging DPD Allocations Document for Falmouth and Penryn and the emerging Falmouth Neighbourhood Plan and would prefer to consider the proposal in the context of those strategies
