A former Ministry of Defence training camp, which closed in 2010, provided a unique brownfield site for a mixed-use development, on the north coast of Cornwall. The development will deliver 134 new homes located within a Cornish village style setting, with employment areas and improved pedestrian connectivity with nearby settlements. Origin3 has taken a lead role in negotiations and consultation with the local community, key stakeholders and the local planning authority’s officers and members, which was considered a key part of the negotiation strategy, prior to submission.
The site lies within close proximity to several wildlife sensitive areas, and therefore a landscape and ecology led approach was developed, leading to a comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment being undertaken.
