Cornwall Council completes purchase of land at Langarth Farm as Garden Village plans proceed
In 2019, the Council took the decision to support the development of a masterplan and key infrastructure for the whole site at Langarth, west of Truro. The masterplan will ensure the scheme provides a sustainable community, a more attractive place to live and good quality homes serving Truro.
In November 2019, the Council aproved a proposal to purchase a large part of the land at Langarth in order to take control and to be able to bring forward our ambitions for a Garden Village development.
Since then the Council has been working with local residents, partners and key stakeholders to create a vibrant and distinctive new community at Langarth. It will have walkable neighbourhoods, connected by sustainable transport, generous and high quality green spaces. There will also be access to shops, facilities and meeting places. The scheme will create well designed housing and will also provide improved infrastructure and spaces for work and services that fit the needs of a diverse population.
The land purchase finally came to fruition after very long and complex negotiations with a number of interested parties were completed with the transfer of land taking place in late March 2020.
