Connecting the community
We want to ensure that Langarth connects with existing settlements, the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro and Penwith College and existing and planned retail developments in the rest of Truro.
We will provide joined up and accessible transport links, with a new road and interconnected green corridors providing easy access and positive connections with the city and surrounding communities. We will also include separate walkways and cycle paths for people to travel for work, school or leisure, as well as improvements to the existing A390 and improved bus services.
Links to surrounding areas
As well as constructing the new Northern Access Road and improving the A390, we will provide green corridors linking to existing communities at Threemilestone, Treliske and Gloweth, with the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro and Penwith College and with the city of Truro.
Cornwall Council is supporting the development of a number of community projects in the Threemilestone and Highertown areas to help ensure local services do not come under pressure as a result of Langarth.
These include improving existing community facilities such as the Community Hall at All Saints Church Highertown, providing a new hall at Threemilestone School, new playing pitches in Threemilestone and public realm upgrades to the village centre to increase the aesthetic appeal, decrease congestion and improve offering of parking – whilst improving pedestrian and cycle links between the village and new Langarth development.
Truro, the UK’s most southerly city, is easily accessible from Langarth. Known as a “great little city”, Truro is a vibrant centre of shopping, culture and impressive architecture right in the heart of Cornwall. It has an impressive array of independent traders and a thriving café culture as well as being home to Truro Cathedral, Royal Cornwall Museum and the Hall For Cornwall.
