Camborne will not support Lanner's bid to challenge an affordable homes judicial review
CAMBORNE'S mayor said she was disappointed her council did not support Lanner Parish Council following the rejection of its judicial review over an affordable housing scheme.
The parish council appealed after Cornwall Council granted permission to Coastline Housing for the development of 25 homes in the village.
It claimed the village needed fewer affordable homes and questioned Cornwall Council's interpretation of a planning policy.
But the judge found in Cornwall Council's favour, clearing the way for the development after a delay of more than a year.

At its full meeting on Thursday, Camborne Town Council agreed to note Lanner's request for support but take no further action.
Councillor Robert Webber said: "I am not going to support this because they would have to show the decision was perverse and it was not. There's a financial risk to the council involved in it and I can't see them succeeding."
But mayor Jean Charman, the only councillor who voted against the motion, said: "Lanner had a parish plan part of which was to identify local housing needs.
"After very careful research, which involved going to every house in the parish, they identified the need for 11 homes.
"Lanner has now lodged an application for permission to further appeal against the outcome of judicial review."
