One of the biggest developments in Cornwall the Duchy of Cornwall led scheme at Nansledan has already provided around 600 new homes, a primary school and business units on the edge of Newquay. It will eventually have 4,000 homes and is now being held up as an exemplar project for other similar developments.

Next year the development will continue with aims of increasing the current rate of housebuilding from 120 a year to around 170 a year from 2023/24. A total of 30 per cent of the homes built at Nansledan are affordable and the development has sold 70 per cent of properties so far to people from Cornwall.

The number of businesses on the site is also set to increase – there are already 33 firms established at Nansledan and the development of Kew an Lergh Courtyard will create even more employment space.

This development, due to be completed in the first quarter of 2023 includes a nursery, which will be operated by Naturally Learning; a cafe/restaurant; three retail units; and four offices.

The next major part of Nansledan to come to fruition will be Market Street which will be very much the commercial heart of the development. This area will have shops, offices, housing and leisure facilities with a focus on food, drinks and leisure to create a daytime and evening economy. Construction is expected to start on this area at the end of 2023.
