Independent West Country house builder Devonshire Homes has exchanged conditional contracts for the acquisition of approximately 36 acres of land for a new build homes development in Trannack near Penzance.

The site is located close to the A30 where about 300 architecturally-designed homes are planned for the scheme. Devonshire Homes will seek to obtain detailed planning consent for the development which will offer a mix of one and two-bedroom flats and two, three, four and five-bedroom homes.

The land at Trannack is one of the major sites allocated for housing under Cornwall Council’s Local Plan for Penzance to support strategic growth in west Cornwall. Devonshire Homes says it will bring forward a scheme to deliver a new access road from the A30 and a range of homes which sit well within the topography of the site, maximising the outlook and views.

MD Angus Cook said: “We are pleased to have exchanged contracts on land at Trannack for a forthcoming Devonshire Homes development.  This is the first of several we have in solicitors’ hands, to further build the land pipeline for the business.  The Trannack development will be one of our ‘anchor’ sites.

“Work will now start on submitting a detailed planning application for a range of new homes on this allocated development. We are looking forward to engaging with residents, community stakeholders and councils as we finalise our plans to deliver much-needed new homes that mean prospective buyers from varying stages of the property ladder will be able to find a suitable home here.”


  1. For goodness sake, why don’t the powers that be just stop allowing these awful developments for a few years. All the talk about much needed housing is a joke when the vast majority of them go to non locals
