The company said it was in regular contact with the case officer to try to find a solution to the first floor window problem that was acceptable to all parties. “In the end, this was not possible and we did not have enough time to change our proposal to a regular frosted vinyl. Therefore, we did not change our plans and resubmit,” they declared.
Falmouth City Council planners gave conditional approval to the new design in July.
