    Story

    A fourth generation farmer and owner of a successful equestrian business has said he is worried his land could be taken from him as part of Penryn Campus expansion plans.

    John Tozer, who runs Treliever Equestrian Centre near the university, is asking as many people as possible to comment on Cornwall Council's draft Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD), which sets out proposed land allocations for the area until 2030.

    Mr Tozer is concerned that the document has marked a tranche of land, including his 45 acre farm, as an allocated site for the campus, with education and support facilities, office space and student accommodation - and it is the only site on the map with such an allocation.

    The land, which is classified as agricultural grade 3a or 'good' farming quality, has been part of the government's Mid Tier countryside stewardship scheme over the last ten years, and Mr Tozer said: "It's beautiful countryside, trees and hedges and flowers. It's too good to develop."

    He added that the people who come to use the centre see it as "their part of England," while the work he had done had made it "a haven for wildlife."

    On Friday 28th October with the help of Save our Falmouth a sign was erected on his land to raise awareness of his plight. Someone stole the sign on Saturday 29th October between 8.00 and 10.30 am.

    We wish to help Mr Toser erect a new, prominent sign, but funds are needed. Many thanks.
