Our aim is to create a vibrant and distinctive new community at Langarth with walkable neighbourhoods and generous green spaces all connected by sustainable transport.
This means walkable neighbourhoods, connected by sustainable transport. Generous and high-quality green spaces, with access to shops, facilities and meeting places.
We are working with partners to ensure that the scheme connects with existing settlements. These include Threemilestone, Gloweth, Shortlanesend, Chacewater, St Agnes and Truro, the Royal Truro Hospital Treliske, Truro and Penwith College. We also want to connect with existing and planned retail developments in the rest of Truro.
There will also be new schools, with play and leisure facilities and a new community centre.
We are aware of the impact of new developments on health infrastructure. We will ensure that investment in new health facilities takes place at the start of the development when needed.
The Truro primary care practices are looking at options for increasing provision. These include a new medical centre on the site. They are also considering alternative methods for delivering primary and community based services. We are working with NHS Kernow and the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust to minimise the impact of the development on the acute hospital and emergency services.
We want to involve as many people as possible in the development of Langarth Garden Village.
We will be holding workshops, presentations and briefings for community groups, organisations, schools and colleges. These activities will help us what wider community want. They will also help connect the new community with those already in existence. Which will deliver positive spins off’s all round.
