Higher Fraddon latest … pre-application submission received by Cornwall Council

It has just come to my attention that the unitary authority has, this week, received a submission for “pre-application advice” for a potential planning application at Higher Fraddon.

Given the ongoing planning issues at Higher Fraddon, I thought it important to let everyone know as soon as possible.

The submission is speculative and, I understand, is not linked to the biogas plant.

The proposal states it would be for an “energy storage facility,” The potential site would be situated on the old pig farm units, located some three-quarters of the way up the Higher Fraddon road before the sharp corner.

The paperwork suggests there would be a single large building measuring 65m by 45m, with a height of nine metres.

The information is presently quite limited, which can be viewed on the Council’s planning portal. The application number is PA16/00186/PREAPP.

This is not a formal planning application, but I will further chase this up with the relevant officers next week and I will report back to local residents.
