More high-quality homes coming to Cornwall
13 February 2024
Cornwall and West Devon's Eve Parc development has secured two new planning permissions to bring more quality homes for local people to Falmouth.
Persimmon Cornwall received approval from Cornwall Council last week for Eve Parc Whiteland which will see the region deliver 36 quality new homes for local people, 13 of which will be transferred to a housing association partner.
As part of the scheme, Persimmon will make financial contributions to the local authority worth over £200,000 for the benefit of healthcare, education, transport, public open space, and public rights of way in the area as well as the Fal and Helford special area of conservation.
Commenting, Persimmon Homes Cornwall & West Devon Managing Director Andy Hill said:
"We are delighted to announce that we've received the green light to provide high-quality, new housing solutions for local people in Falmouth.
“With Cornwall facing a severe housing crisis, this project aims to mitigate this challenge by building these essential homes. A substantial number of these units will be transferred to a local housing association partner, helping tackle the county's substantial housing waiting list.
“Continuing our demonstrable commitment to leaving a positive and lasting legacy in the areas in which we build, we will also be contributing financially to local services in Falmouth in addition to the much-need homes.
“As a proud local housebuilder, Persimmon will continue our work in delivering homes, jobs, and infrastructure for communities across Cornwall.”
