A Cornish developer is inviting the local community to view plans for an affordable-led scheme at Connor Downs in West Cornwall

Treveth proposes to construct 40 high-quality, sustainable new homes after the site gained outline planning permission in June 2023.

Residents will be able to view the developed plans during a public consultation, which will be held at the Women’s Institute (WI) Hall, Turnpike Road, Connor Downs, Hayle on Wednesday, March 27 from 2pm to 7pm.

The informal drop-in session seeks to provide detail around the site layout, landscaping design and house types and provide an opportunity for local people to talk to the team behind the delivery of the proposed new development and provide feedback on the scheme.

Tom Davey, Development Manager at Treveth, said: “We’re looking forward to unveiling our proposed plans for 40 new homes in Connor Downs.

“It’s no secret that Cornwall is currently in the midst of a housing crisis.

“We need to start bringing more high-quality new build homes to local people and we’re pleased that Treveth is the developer that can bring these homes forward. 

“Our first community event was really well attended, and provided us with some valuable input that we considered when developing our design proposals for the site.

“We’re looking forward to meeting with local residents again and providing the opportunity to view our developed proposals. 

“Attendees will be able to see display boards which highlight what the development could look like, alongside receiving more information about the types of homes that will be coming to Connor Downs, as well as Treveth’s approach to sustainability and its ethos for delivering homes for local people where they are much needed.” 

Since its launch in 2019, Treveth has been building high-quality new build homes, sustainable communities, and commercial developments in partnership with Cornwall Council to benefit people who live and work in Cornwall.

The Connor Downs project will see Treveth bring forward much-needed new homes for local people, including both affordable and open market properties. 

Founded by Cornwall Council, Treveth now manages 96 properties across three developments. The company was established to improve the quality of rented accommodation and to increase the availability of homes across the rental, shared ownership, and private rental sectors. Treveth currently has over 300 homes in build for local residents in Tolgus, Liskeard and Bodmin. 

The developer builds low carbon developments and strives to achieve challenging carbon emissions targets set for 2030.

Treveth’s 185-home scheme at Tolgus, Gwel Bassett, is a market leading low carbon estate housing scheme, with Treveth’s future schemes, including one at Park Lanneves in Bodmin and another at Bann an Hyns, Liskeard following its lead. 

Treveth has also successfully managed and sold properties transferred from Cornwall Council resulting in thriving local communities.

These include Heathlands View, Bodmin; The Coppers, Tolvaddon and Tregover, Newquay.
