Draft guidance for how land north of the A390 in Truro could be
developed is available on the Council’s website.
The draft development brief will help the Council determine
planning applications and proposals for the 140 hectare site north
of the A390 at Truro/Threemilestone. The brief is open for
consultation until Thursday 1 September and has been drafted
following feedback from the local community earlier this year.
Proposals from three major developers for the site include around
2,500 new houses, two sizeable new food stores and a 10,000 seat
Mark Kaczmarek, Cornwall Councillor for housing and planning,
has approved the brief despite a lack of agreement from Truro City
and Kenwyn Parish Councils. Councillor Kaczmarek said: “Without a
brief it is far less likely that development will be of the
appropriate quality and properly phased with all necessary
facilities and services than if the Council were to simply react
independently to the major applications that it will have to
determine in the coming months”.
Councillor Kaczmarek continued: “I would emphasise that
production of the brief does not pre-empt the outcome of the
emerging Truro and Surrounding Area Framework which will be
published shortly for consultation, and which may or may not
allocate all or part of the site for development”.
