Devonshire Homes Receives Approval for New Homes Development in Penzance

17 April 2024

Devonshire Homes is thrilled to announce that Cornwall Council has granted a resolution to proceed with a new homes development in Penzance. The project, situated on land at Trannack Farm, marks a significant step forward in addressing the area's housing needs.

The development will see the creation of 320 new homes, 96 of which will be affordable, and underscores Devonshire Homes' commitment to providing accessible housing options while contributing to the local community's growth and sustainability.

In accordance with the Government's National Design Guide (2019), Devonshire Homes has meticulously crafted the project to harmonise with the site's character, embrace sustainability, and foster a sense of place.

Angus Cook, Managing Director at Devonshire Homes, said:

"We are delighted to have received full planning approval at Trannack. The site was allocated after Cornwall Council assessed it for suitability and sustainability, and the homes we deliver here will be energy-efficient and reflect local structures and building materials and contribute to, and enhance the, local community".

The collaborative effort between Devonshire Homes and Cornwall Council has been integral to navigating the planning process smoothly. The involvement of external consultants and the constructive dialogue facilitated by two design review panels, with the local authority have ensured that community needs are prioritised and incorporated into the Devonshire Homes’ vision for the development.

Public engagement has also been key, and Devonshire Homes has held several sessions in the local Penzance community to keep everyone informed and gather valuable feedback.

The project has garnered attention for its exceptional design, with Devonshire Homes partnering with John Pardey Architects to refine the scheme. The dedication to excellence has resulted in a development poised for recognition, as it is nominated for a prestigious design award.

Devonshire Homes extends a huge thank you to all involved for their hard work and commitment to excellence, making this milestone possible. We are also grateful to the landowner, the Bolitho Estate for entrusting us with the site and look forward to sharing our progress and seeing these new homes for local house hunters start to take shape.
