"The concept for this significant urban extension, that relates architecturally to the existing town of Newquay, has been developed with the benefit of extensive public consultation. The aspiration of the Duchy of Cornwall (owned by The Prince of Wales), who will retain a long-term interest in the 218.4 hectare site, is to create an exemplary, dense, mixed use, mixed tenure, sustainable extension that is distinctively Cornish in character and closely tailored to the needs of the local community. It will also act as a catalyst to diversify and strengthen the local economy, with a minimum of one job per household being created. A consortium of privately owned regional house builders help ensure the long-term best value is achieved for the development, and that local supply chains can be established at the outset to ensure that the economic warmth generated by the development is enjoyed by the surrounding area. A total of 4,000 units are included in the overall masterplan, with phases of about 100 units being built over a 50-year time period. Work started on site in 2013."
