Kitchener Land and Planning are delighted to offer this residential development site for sale, located in an elevated position and within close proximity of the City centre and schools. The site offers planning permission (Ref.PA15/05495) for the construction of a prestigious development of 14 luxury apartments with basement parking and landscaped communal gardens. The approved plans show the two and three bedroom apartments having floor areas between 106.2sqm (1143sqft) and 166.5sqm (1792sqft) - the total floor area for the 14 dwellings extends to c. 1633.2sqm (17,582sqft).

The apartments will be arranged with four per floor level at ground to second floor levels and these will be served via two entrances accessed from the northwest, each with stairwell and lift. On the third floor level there will be two larger three bedroom apartments. Vehicular access to the properties will be via an existing tree lined private driveway; there are also footpath links from the site to both Tregolls Road and Tremorvah Wood Lane. The total site
area extends to approximately 0.72 ha / 1.78 acres.


The site is located within easy reach of the city centre, approximately 650m from Lemon Street and 600m from the quayside. Truro offers an abundance of amenities & a wealth of professional services. The centre of the city has managed to retain its charm and character as it has moved into the 21st Century and has therefore maintained its popularity amongst visitors whom enjoy the numerous shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants that line the cobbled streets. Surrounding the outskirts are several larger retail outlets & supermarkets, the Royal Cornwall Hospital, along with a comprehensive range of educational centres covering pre-school age right up to a graduate level (Truro & Penwith College - rated outstanding by Ofsted) including several highly acclaimed public schools.

The city is surrounded in all directions by beautiful open countryside and many creek-side settlements that boast access to some fantastic sailing waters including the world renowned stretch known as the 'Carrick Roads' which provide navigable waters from Truro to Falmouth bay, passing several places of note along the way. Truro also offers a healthy communication network via a highly integrated transport system both locally and nationally. The train station provides a regular, direct service to Falmouth, Penzance and London Paddington to name but just a few; whilst Newquay airport provides quick and easy access to many locations both national and international.


Cornwall Council approved planning application (Ref.PA15/05495) for the "Proposed residential development of 14 apartments with associated access, car parking, infrastructure and landscape amenity space" at Tremorvah House, Truro on 10th November 2015. Interested parties who envisage alternative schemes for the site should make and rely on their own enquiries of the local planning authority.
