Residents meet to oppose new Carbis Bay "village"
CARBIS Bay residents will hold a meeting on Monday to discuss the latest in the Gonwin Farm development saga.
People from St Ives, Carbis Bay and Lelant have been up in arms about the proposed creation of a whole new village east of Carbis Bay.
Locals fear the ‘St Ives Urban Extension’ would mark the start of the disappearance of the green strip between Lelant and Carbis Bay.
Residents have also expressed concern about pressure on traffic, the lack GP, school and other services, and the effect on the environment.

Other fears include the effect the development will have on the view holidaymakers arriving at the ‘Gateway to St Ives’ will enjoy.
The developers and architects behind the proposal, however, have stressed that they have consulted residents and that they are keen to address concerns.
They are proposing including shops, restaurants and bars, industrial units, a care home and even a junior sports pitch in the development.
Councillors on St Ives Town Council’s planning committee last week unanimously objected to the plan.
The meeting of the Carbis Bay Residents Action Group will be on Monday (Dec 2) at 7pm at St Anta Church Hall, Carbis Bay.
One of the key topics will be a discussion of information about the highways situation.
Many residents criticised a highways study carried out for the plan because it did not observe the main road at peak times in high season.
