Earlier this month we held a series of community engagement events in Threemilestone, Shortlanesend, Chacewater and Truro in November so people could come and see the latest plans in person and speak to the team leading the project.
These were very positive with a number of people expressing an interest in living at Langarth in the future, as well as asking some challenging questions about the amended plans and giving us their views on the scheme.
A big thank you to everyone who came to the engagement events. We are currently analysing all the comments we received and will be using the feedback to shape future plans for the project.
We have also published our latest Langarth Garden Village newsletter and have produced a short film about the project.
Both the newsletter and the film are available to view on our website: www.langarth.co.uk
Last month also saw the project chosen as one of the winners in the 2021 Michelmores Property Awards. These awards celebrate outstanding property and construction projects in the South West and we were delighted to win first place in the Masterplanning for the Future category. Judges praised the scheme for its ambitious, place-making vision to create a brand-new community of 10,000 people in a vibrant inclusive environment.

The Garden Village application is currently scheduled to be considered at the meeting of the Strategic Planning Committee on 16 December when members will decide whether or not to grant planning permission for the scheme. However this date is dependent on all the necessary information being available and so may change.
If outline planning permission is granted for the Langarth Garden Village scheme, the next stage in obtaining the necessary detailed consents will be the preparation of the ‘reserved matters’ application which will deal with areas not included in the outline application proposal. These can include the appearance, means of access, landscaping, and scale of the development.
