Construction work just weeks away at Falmouth site
13 November 2017
Persimmon Homes has completed the purchase of development land in Falmouth, paving the way for work on hundreds of new homes to begin.
Persimmon Homes has planning permission to build 300 houses at Lower Kergilliack Farm, off Bickland Water Road, and announced that construction work is scheduled to start imminently.
The development, known as Eve Parc, will consist of two, three and four bedroom homes, creating 450 direct jobs and 270 indirect jobs.
Daniel Heathcote, director in charge at Persimmon Homes Cornwall, said the development would provide much-needed new homes to the town.
“We are delighted to have completed the purchase of this land and to be on the cusp of starting work on this exciting new project in Falmouth,” said Daniel.
“There is a real need for good quality, sensibly priced housing in the town – and this development will go a long way to addressing that need.”
Eve Parc is 10 minutes from the heart of Falmouth, which boasts excellent shopping, restaurants, bars, water sports and art facilities.
Persimmon Homes launched its Cornish regional business, with headquarters in Launceston, in March last year.
“We are continuing to grow as a business and to build in new areas,” added Daniel. “This expansion leads to new jobs. This development alone will create more than 700 jobs over the build period. That is huge news for the local economy.”
The houses will be available to buy off-plan as soon as building work starts.
For now, house hunters have the opportunity to register their interest in the properties to ensure they are kept up-to-date with progress.
