Every week dozens of planning applications are submitted to Cornwall Council, from conversions and demolitions to new businesses and housing.
Most of them are small and relate to things like new skylights or trees that need to be cut down.
But large-scale housing programs and infrastructure projects are also following the same path.

Below are four planning applications submitted to the local authority over the past week that you may need to be aware of.
All of these applications are pending a decision.
