Cornwall and West Devon secure permission on vision for Helston development
10 August 2023
Cornwall and West Devon region have secured planning permission on its reserved matters application for a development in Helston.
The land adjacent to Clodgey Lane and Gays Hill enjoyed outline planning permission for 404 homes, and construction can now begin on the first phase after receiving detailed planning approval from Cornwall Council.
On Phase One, the region will deliver 94 high quality new homes for local people, and will also transfer 19 properties to a housing association provider to support the local community’s housing need.
The scheme will deliver enhanced walking and cycling routes, road access, public open spaces, and includes the retention of the existing landscape structure.
The development also benefits from being within close distance of educational, recreational, and retail facilities, in addition to having direct links to local bus stops.
Plans for the second phase of the remaining 310 homes were submitted in April and are currently being examined by Cornwall Council.
Commenting, Managing Director of Persimmon Homes Cornwall and West Devon Adam Church said:
“We are thrilled to have secured planning permission for Phase One of our Helston development.
“This marks a significant milestone for Persimmon Homes Cornwall & West Devon as we embark on the construction of 94 exceptional homes, designed to enhance the lives of local residents.
“With a commitment to quality and community, our first phase will include 19 homes for local social provision, improved pathways, road access, and inviting public spaces, all while preserving the natural beauty of the area.
“Situated conveniently near essential amenities and public transportation, this development reflects our dedication to creating thriving, inclusive neighbourhoods.
“As we move forward, we eagerly await the next phase and the opportunity to continue contributing to the growth and prosperity of Helston.”
