Residents are invited to come and have their say at a series of listening events being held in and around the location of the new Langarth Garden Village this October.

We want the masterplanning of Langarth Garden Village to be truly community led.  These events are an early opportunity for those living in the villages in and around the proposed Garden Village site to come and talk to the masterplanning team.  We want to hear your ideas, aspirations and concerns and for you to ask any questions you may have. 

This is the start of a two way process which will bring the local community into the centre of the place-making process.

The first event is being held at St Agnes on Wednesday, 09 October, with further events taking place at Highertown, Threemilestone, Chacewater and Shortlanesend. All the events will run from 2pm to 7pm so that as many people as possible have the opportunity to attend. 

  • 09 October - St Agnes, Miners and Mechanics
  • 10 October - Highertown All Saints Church
  • 11 October - Threemilestone Primary School
  • 18 October - Chacewater Village Hall
  • 25 October - Shortlanesend Village Hall

“The next few months are going to be a very important time for local residents as the masterplan is developed” said Bob Egerton, Cornwall Council’s Cabinet portfolio holder for culture, planning and economy. 

“Hundreds of people visited the Truro Placeshaping stand at last month’s Truro Day to find out more about the plans for Langarth Garden Village and to share their views and aspirations. Their comments have been taken on board by the team and are being used to help shape the emerging masterplan.

“We want Langarth Garden Village to be a vibrant and distinctive community where people want to live, work and thrive. To help us achieve this we need as many people as possible living in communities in and around Langarth to have their say on how they want this scheme to evolve. Please come along to one of these community events and have your say. “

Cornwall Council member for Threemilestone and Gloweth Dulcie Tudor.  “There are as yet many unknowns about what is going to be developed at Langarth. But what’s clear is whatever happens it is going to have a significant impact on the lives of people in my Division of Threemilestone and Gloweth.

That is why it is vitally important local residents have a voice in the planning decision process. So I strongly urge people to take part in these consultations. Let the Planners know your views then, armed with this information, I can effectively lobby on your behalf. “

Further information about the scheme and future engagement events are available on the Langarth Garden Village  pages on the Cornwall Council website.
