RESIDENTS of a seaside town have an unbelievable list of rules – they are banned from arguing, slamming doors and even putting their bins out.

The Nansledan estate, a 540-acre extension to the town of Newquay, Cornwall, has 85 restrictions set out in a 35-page rulebook.

The housing development was commissioned by King Charles when he was the Prince of Wales.

Homeowners cannot have satellite dishes, plastic blinds, external drainpipes, solar panels, bubbled skylights, porches and caravans.

Residents are banned from flying flags and must keep their bins out of sight unless on collection day.

Slamming doors, loud arguing, prostitution and drunkenness are also prohibited, according to the documents.

Ross Cervi, 40, has lived in the suburb for five years with his partner and their 18-month-old son.

"There is a covenant that you have to sign with the Duchy Estate," the plant operator told the Mirror.

"If you want to change the colour of your house you can only choose from a certain palette.

"If you want to build an extension then plans have to be submitted, and they have to be approved by the Duchy.

"We haven't done any of that but we don't find it oppressive – all of it is common decency."

However, more disgruntled residents have taken to private Facebook groups to express their frustration with the rules.

One wrote: "I am absolutely sick to death of this estate. Someone has taken all the ornaments outside of my house again.

"Second time this has happened. Can't keep nothing nice anymore. Let me catch you that's all I'm saying."

The rules were set by the Duchy of Cornwall, not by the Prince himself, according to the Telegraph.

The estate was built using traditional Cornish methods in 2020 and the rules are to "protect the character" of Nansledan.

All stone and slate must be from a West Country quarry – with no red bricks allowed in the development.
