A public consultation event will be taking place in Truro on 15 November for those who would like to find out more about the proposed new community, Langarth Garden Village.

It will take place at The Pydar Pop Up, St Clement Street, Truro (formerly Hardy Carpets) from 8am – 7pm.

Langarth Garden Village is an ambitious Cornwall Council led project. They want to create a distinctive community at Langarth, on the edge of the city of Truro, where people will live work and thrive.

Langarth will be a vibrant, connected, well planned community for between 8,000 and 10,000 residents of Cornwall. It will have local character, strong services, and integrated and accessible transport and green spaces.

Langarth has Garden Village status. Nature will be a key part of the design with green spaces, thoughtfully designed neighbourhoods and affordable homes.

The involvement of Cornwall Council means high quality, well designed homes which are affordable for local people. Schools, health and play facilities will be built at the start of the scheme rather than at the end. They want to create a sustainable bus service and cycle paths and walkways. This will connect homes within the Garden Village and out into neighbouring communities and places of work.

Their aim is to involve as many people as possible in the development of Langarth Garden Village. The new community will have positive links with Truro and nearby towns and villages. These include Threemilestone, Gloweth, Highertown, Chacewater and Shortlanesend.
