The next phase of the Nansledan development in Newquay has been given planning permission which allows for another 265 homes.

A hybrid planning application had been submitted to Cornwall Council for the sixth phase of the development.

The plans are in two parts with the application including detailed plans for 122 homes and outline plans for the other 143 homes.

Nansledan is a major extension to Newquay over 540 acres which will eventually have around 4,000 homes.

The development, which is already part built, includes a new school and other facilities for the people who will live there.

It is being led by the Duchy of Cornwall which owns most of the land that it is being built on.

The latest plans, which were approved by Cornwall Council under delegated powers last week, are known as the Rialton Quarter of the overall development.

In a design and access statement submitted as part of the application it is explained that the Rialton Quarter is on the eastern edge of Nansledan. It is triangular and bordered by Quintrell Road and Rialton Road. Under the proposals the area has been split into two phases.

The Nansledan development is earmarked to have 30% affordable housing which continues with Rialton which will also have an extra eight affordable homes due to under provision on previous phases.

This means there will be 38 affordable homes in the first 122 properties to be built and 44 affordable homes in the phase of 143 homes.

Across the phases there will be a mix of one bedroom to five bedroom properties.

The Rialton area also has allotments along the northern boundary of the site. These are currently used by existing residents from the nearby area, but the design and access statement says that they will eventually be used by residents in the new development.

To the western boundary there are plans for new allotments to be provided along with a community orchard. There are also plans for an informal play area.

The plans also include the various roads, footways and parking areas which will be required for the development.

Planning permission was granted, with conditions, by Cornwall Council on Friday (April 3).
