Gonna get us all connected....
 
Having read the article on the front page of the West Briton ​this morning that makes reference to our group without conference, we felt it only fair that we clarified our position on the College Valley development. We would also like to make it clear that the GGSRP are but one group actively campaigning against Cornwall Councils decision. There are many more groups and individuals involved and we are making this statement on behalf of our group.

1. As a community group that has worked voluntarily for a number of years in the lower public Glasney Valley we feel that ANY development within the College Valley that has been prioritised by Cornwall Council & endorsed by Penryn Town Council, (please see attached map of prioritised site presented by CC), will have a damaging and negative effect on the Glasney Valley and remaining College Woodlands. 

Damaging effects will include –

A) The breakdown of natural bio-diversity and ecology caused by manmade pollutions especially on fragile ancient woodland.

B) The threat to wildlife including several red and amber status animals and plant life.

C) Damage & loss of the remaining lower valley to Flooding and also the high risk of flooding to lower properties. A drainage report carried out on the lower Glasney Valley confirms that it is a floodplain and high risk for flooding.

D) The loss of one of the Towns oldest and most spectacular landscapes regardless of public rights of way it is still a visible and highly valued landscape and area within the Town.

E) Loss of one of the Towns oldest heritage foundations and again regardless of Public rights of way this area is still valued as part of the Towns heritage and should be respected and protected as such.

3. Loss of the communities sense of place and well-being caused by the negative effects on this site by ANY development by this we mean not just on the, ‘observed’, landscape but to the public areas below.

4. From the outset we have reiterated several times that at it this stage our primary concern is the afore mentioned prioritisation of College Valley for development. We believe that the evidence presented to Penryn Town Council is insufficient, has been interpreted wrongly, and inconsistently applied and on this basis, we believe that this is not the right site.

5. We have never addressed the forthcoming planning presentation other than to fairly announce it as a meeting we feel the public should attend. We have not commented on any specific developments and this is because we are yet to attend the pre-planning presentation. However we can see that some points on the forthcoming planning proposal have been brought into the public domain by media coverage and the comments on social media platforms made by some Councilors and NOT by the GGSRP. To CLARIFY – at this stage we as a group have only addressed the decision by Cornwall Council to prioritise this site for development, which we feel is wrong based on the afore mentioned effects on the landscape and the community.

6. We are also concerned that based on the high cost of building on this site the potential to deliver 40% affordable housing would be severely in doubt. The cost implications of building on a site with this topography, managing water run-off and mitigating the flood risk to the lower valley, along with a range of other factors mean any developer would be able to reduce their commitment to the level of affordable housing they deliver.

7. We must also be clear that although we have yet to see the pre-planning presentation by the developer all the land you will see on the Cornwall Council map has been priortised. This is a fact, in the public domain and of real public concern.

8. At this stage much of the information in the media and being presented by some Councilors on the issue  surrounds the developers plans and intentions, none of which relates to the evidence in the public domain and that has been presented by Cornwall Council to support their decision to prioritise this site. GGSRP are therefore concerned that this site has been prioritsed based purely as an, ‘easy option’ and not a decision based on the available evidence.

We hope this clarifies our position and we would also appreciate that you could present a more balanced article in your future publications. We are not aware of any reporters from the West Briton who have attended any of the public meetings to date, or met with the various community groups and individuals opposed to this.
