The draft Development Consent Order (DCO) submitted with the application made by Cornwall Council for the A30 Temple to Higher Carblake Improvement seeks amongst other things to authorise the compulsory acquisition of registered common land.

Cornwall Council submitted a separate s131 and s132 application on 15 August 2013 to the Common Land Team at the Planning Inspectorate. Due to changes to the Planning Act introduced by the Growth and Infrastructure Act for applications after 24 June 2013, there is no longer a need for separate s131/132 applications. Instead these matters are now examined and reported upon by the appointed Examining Authority as part of the DCO examination.

The s131/132 application documents have therefore now been added to the suite of documents submitted with the DCO application (use the “Other Documents” filter button). The forthcoming Relevant Representations period, details of which are on the right of this page, will allow potential interested parties to make submissions on any aspect of the application including on any of the information contained in the s131/132 application documents.
