Places looks in more detail at the individual projects within areas in Cornwall. These areas are either towns or development areas near a settlement. Each project can very be different to the next. All of them help to make our communities stronger and more resilient for the future.
Place Shaping allows us to understand the assets a community already has. We then plan and work on any identified priorities.
Examples of existing assets are:
- skills and knowledge
- green spaces
- community groups
- public services
Cornwall Council is working in partnership with a private developer and other public agencies to create an exciting new Garden Village community. The Garden Village of 1,500 new homes is in the China Clay area of mid Cornwall, north of St Austell. This development scheme is unique in many ways. The development will set high standards in design quality. As well as early provision of essential infrastructure
Langarth Garden Village is an ambitious Cornwall Council led project. Langarth will be a vibrant, connected, well planned community for between 8,000 and 10,000 residents.
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 a network of cycle paths and walkways. This will connect homes within the Garden Village as well as out into neighbouring communities and places of work.
