Architects gain approval for new development in Newquay
Cornwall-based CAD Architects has received outline approval for a mixed-use development in Newquay.
The project spans 15 acres and includes 134 new homes, along with commercial and retail spaces.
The development encompasses both affordable and open-market housing, and these plans, developed over four years, have undergone a public consultation process.
The upcoming Treloggan development is set to include fresh commercial and office areas, new retail establishments, a public house or restaurant, and a dedicated play park for children situated centrally within the site.
To accommodate various segments of the local community, the residential properties will offer a diverse range of housing options, ranging from 1-bedroom apartments to 4 or 5-bedroom houses.
A central aspect of the plan is the introduction of a ‘Green Link,’ integrating new plantations, ponds, and green spaces across the site, along with multiple pedestrian and cycle connections.
Mark Dawes, MD of CAD Architects, said: “It is vital that we keep bringing forward large-scale proposals for new housing developments if we are to meet the demand from our residents for new homes. With this development, we also want to make sure we create an area with real character – a vibrant place for people to live and work. That is why our proposals go way beyond the provision of housing.
“With this scheme, we have sought to encourage variety and character in the design of buildings. The intention is for this new residential and commercial quarter to work in harmony with the surrounding architecture of Newquay, while also having a personality all of its own.”
