Green light for Newquay development


A housebuilder has successfully obtained planning permission for the delivery of a major new development in Newquay.

The land south of A392 in Trevemper will see Persimmon construct 187 new homes for local families, after permission was granted by Cornwall Council.

In addition, the housebuilder will allocate 56 properties to a local housing association provider, which will help address Cornwall’s pressing housing requirements.

The proposed development comprises homes of one, two and three storeys, and a wide range of properties from one-bed apartments to five-bed homes will be built.

Commenting, Robbie Brown, technical director for Persimmon Homes Cornwall and West Devon, said: “We are delighted to have secured planning permission for our new Newquay development.

“The application demonstrated our continued commitment to the principles of sustainable, high-quality development, delivering a wide choice of homes to meet local needs.”
