Modern but respectful
The project is very important to Cornwall and the existing community of Truro and Threemilestone and offers an opportunity to provide an exemplar new masterplan framework that is both modern and respectful with a Landscape-led placemaking approach and community focus, optimized for flexibility and value creation. The masterplan includes up to 4000 dwellings, social infrastructure including schools, shops, healthcare, green spaces and follows many of the principles that C.F. Møller Architect developed for the Re-imagining the Garden City competition entry. The new Garden Village aspires to a 20% biodiversity net gain across the whole site and it is planned that over 5ha of new woodland will be planted within the masterplan. The development will also aim for much higher than minimum building standards, with Net Zero Carbon homes. A comprehensive stakeholder and community engagement and communication strategy has underpinned all the stages and the master plan has recently been submitted to planning.
