Langarth Garden Village

Langarth Garden Village is an ambitious Cornwall Council led project. We want to create a distinctive community at Langarth, on the edge of the city of Truro, where people will live work and thrive.

Community involvement is key and we're inviting residents to come and have their say and help shape plans for the scheme.

During the past few months local people and stakeholders have been sharing their ideas, aspirations and concerns for the site with the masterplan team. That feedback has played a key role in shaping the emerging masterplan and we are now seeking comments on the latest proposals at the next series of community engagement events.  

The dates and times are:- 

  • Monday, 02 March 2pm to 7pm at Truro Golf Club, Highertown  
  • Tuesday, 03 March 2pm to 7pm at Shortlanesend Village Hall  
  • Wednesday, 04 March 2pm to 7pm at St Agnes Miners and Mechanics Hall  
  • Thursday, 05 March 2pm to 7pm at Chacewater Village Hall  
  • Friday, 06 March 2pm to 7pm at Threemilestone Community Centre 
  • Saturday, 07 March all day at Truro Farmers Market, Lemon Quay  

Members of the public have also been completing an online questionnaire setting out their views on the emerging scheme.

Langarth will be a vibrant, connected, well planned community for between 8,000 and 10,000 residents of Cornwall. It will have local character, strong services and integrated and accessible transport and green spaces.

Langarth has Garden Village status. Nature will be a key part of the design with green spaces, thoughtfully designed neighbourhoods and affordable homes.

Langarth will also become home to the Stadium for Cornwall. This is a separate scheme funded by a partnership led by Truro and Penwith College and the Penzance Pirates.

Our involvement means high quality, well designed homes which are affordable for local people. Schools, health and play facilities built at the start of the scheme rather than at the end. We want to create a sustainable bus service and cycle paths and walkways. This will connect homes within the Garden Village and out into neighbouring communities and places of work.

Our aim is to involve as many people as possible in the development of Langarth Garden Village. The new community will have positive links with Truro and nearby towns and villages. These include Threemilestone, Gloweth, Highertown, Chacewater and Shortlanesend.

We have also set up a separate Langarth Stakeholder Panel. This represents the interests of existing residents and businesses in and around the site.
