DEVELOPMENT SITE
TR1, Truro, Cornwall Plot - At the Truro City end of Old Falmouth Road, on the southern outskirts of the cathedral city of Truro, the centre of which is just 1/2 a mile distant, is a site now benefiting from Outline Planning Permission for 6 - 7 dwellings - Cornwall Council Application Number: PA20/04610 - granted 26 August 2020. The outline planning is for 6 x 3-4 bedroom terraced townhouses, but this could be potentially be amended to up to 12 apartments or a mixture of individual properties etc, on a plot of circa 1/3 acre, with own gardens, possible tandem garaging, additional parking, amenity space, far reaching views and within walking distance to Truro City Centre.

The Location - 'Langweath Lodge' is situated at the top of Old Falmouth Road, just over the brow of the hill from Falmouth Road which leads down into the centre of Truro, less than half a mile distant. This southern edge of Truro is the subject of ongoing residential expansion, and the availability of this site provides an ideal opportunity for building and development companies.

The Cathedral City of Truro is within walking distance and is widely known as the main business and commercial centre of the county and boasts a fine selection of shopping facilities, restaurants, doctors, dentists, cinema, hotels, private and state schools, newly refurbished Hall for Cornwall and has main line railway links to London, Bristol, Exeter etc. St Mawgan Airport is also near Newquay approximately 20 miles or half an hours' drive from the property. The sailing waters of Falmouth Bay, Carrick Roads, The Roseland Peninsula among others are also a short drive away. Increasingly rare chance to find a plot of this size so close to the city of Truro.

The neighbours to each side are well screened from the site which currently consists of a 1920s bungalow which has been extended and is set in the middle of this slightly sloping sylvan setting with the addition of a large garage which offers additional possibilities and parking area, patio and shed which again offers alternatives to extend upwards or to the sides

The Site - The site is currently occupied by the property known as 'Langweath Lodge' (formerly Dorrance) which, like the proposed development, benefits from a lightly wooded setting, backing onto farmland, with the front elevation enjoying a sunny west-facing aspect towards the outskirts of the city and surrounding countryside. The site in total extends to just over one third of an acre or thereabouts.

Planning Permission - On 26 August 2020, Cornwall Council granted Outline Planning Permission, with 'all matters reserved' for the proposed development of 6, possibly 7 dwellings. A copy of the Decision Notice is available along with all relevant documentation on the council's online Planning Register - Application Number: PA20/04610. Documentation includes a Tree Protection Plan, Ecology Report and Flood Risk Assessment, etc.

From Truro city centre, proceed up Falmouth Road, passing Truro High School on the right-hand side. At the roundabout, proceed directly across following the signs to Falmouth (A39) & within 100 yards of leaving the roundabout, turn left into Old Falmouth Road. The site will then be found on the left-hand side.
