Pydar is an exciting and ambitious Cornwall Council led project to transform an underused site in the heart of Truro.

The masterplan is to create a dynamic, inclusive community hub with green spaces, new affordable homes for local people, cutting-edge innovation and businesses delivering high quality jobs, new social and cultural opportunities, improved and sustainable transport links and an active waterfront.

Pydar Street Masterplan Consultation


The 4 hectare site extends from the River Allen up to Pydar Street and from the Viaduct down towards the Cathedral approach, and includes the former Carrick District Council offices, as well as the Viaduct car park and several businesses including Truro Bowl.


We are working with our partners and the local community to develop a Masterplan for the site.

By developing a coherent plan for the development which sets higher standards for placemaking and design, we can ensure that the scheme provides a sustainable community and a desirable and attractive place to live.

The Masterplan will help us to deliver high quality, well designed housing, improved infrastructure and spaces for work and services that fit the needs of a diverse population.

Our aim is to complete the Masterplan in the Autumn ahead of applying for outline planning permission in early 2020.

Who is involved?

The project is being led by Cornwall Council who are working with a range of partners to create a Masterplan for the site.

These include: Architects PRP, Truro City Council, Truro BID, Kenwyn Parish Council, Falmouth University, Truro Chamber of Commerce, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership and Poynton Bradbury Wynter Cole.
