Langarth Garden Village

The masterplan of Langarth Garden Village includes dwellings, schools, shops, healthcare, and green spaces and is based on a comprehensive community engagement strategy. As part of an architect-led multi-disciplinary team, C.F. Møller Architects won the competition to create a vision, area- and masterplan, design guide, and an outline planning application for the 190ha large development area west of Truro city in Cornwall. The new development has recently received the status of a Garden Community. The Site is in the central region of Cornwall and its eastern boundary is located approximately 3.5km to the west of Truro city center. The Site is bordered to the south by the A390, a dual carriageway that separates the site from the existing Threemilestone Village. Hedgerows and areas of woodland adjoined by minor watercourses bound most of the Site to the west, north, and part of the east. The Site includes the Langarth Park and Ride, which provides 1,209 car-parking spaces and links coach services into Truro city.

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.
