Breaking News ! At least two residents who live near a greenfield site in Truro say they will chain themselves to diggers if it is ever built on. They made the dramatic claims on social media after a photograph was shared of a sign at an entrance to fields in the Coosebean and Newmills area, which remains the last valley not to be built on in the city. A number of handwritten signs have been erected in the area, stating: “This pathwalk field and those above have been acquired by the builders Persimmon. We believe they will submit plans very soon. “Please check the planning website for news of the proposed building and, when plans are submitted, protest if you see fit. Thank you (local residents and walkers).” Another sign erected by concerned 'local walkers and residents' The image was shared on the Hendra Community Group Facebook page, with a resident stating: “Saw this today at one of the entrances to the fields to Coosebean/Newmills. I knew this would happen one day. I will do what I can to voice my opinion to not allow building there.

. However, they may not have to go to such drastic ends as Persimmon says is it not aware of any planning application. A spokesperson for the company said: “With regard to handwritten notes left at Coosebean, we are not aware of anything that has been submitted to planning on behalf of Persimmon Homes.” Coosebean and Newmills lie in an area of countryside between Treliske, Kenwyn and the Malabar estate. Plans to build six large houses in the Kenwyn area were refused planning permission earlier this month after councillors said the site was in open countryside. Epernay Consultants had applied to Cornwall Council for permission to build the new homes on land off Hamilton Close in Truro. The application went before the council's central sub-area planning committee on September 7 and planning officers had recommended approval. However, the committee was concerned about objections made by Truro City Council and local Cornwall councillor David Harris about the development being in a "green buffer" and considered to be open countryside. The proposals were to build six detached homes across two paddocks.
