Planning permission – progress! We have been granted planning permission for change of use of Business Unit 1, Chyryn Drive. Hooray! You can view our application and supporting documents on Cornwall Council’s online planning register, using reference PA23/08039:

Premises – we’re pleased with progress so far. Photos above and below are from a site visit on 27 January, when some of the Management Committee members met with appointed surveyor, Stephen Knightly, to prepare working drawings to convert the Unit into a shop. There’s still quite a bit to do over the next few weeks in readiness to start adaptation work, so we’re now on a final push to:

  • Arrange further on-site visits to check handover condition and ensure Cornwall Council complete any remaining work.
  • Use these visits to also finalise what works and costs are needed to convert the Unit into a retail Shop (a schedule of works).
  • Undertake a building survey and prepare working drawings for Building Control approval.
  • Finalise the lease details and sign the lease with Cornwall Council.
  • Finalise and publish our Business Plan. Finalise and issue our Share Offer, to help raise final start-up funds.

Please note that the above aren’t in step-by-step order, as some of the items go hand-in-hand and need to be done together.

Myth Buster – We’ve become aware of a rumour that the Community Shop won’t be selling newspapers. The Management Committee knows that nearly half of the questionnaire respondents wanted newspapers (46%) and there have been no suggestions at Committee that we shouldn’t provide newspapers.
