Penmayne, Cornwall – Planning Submitted

Planning has been submitted for 28 no. new houses and apartments for Hannafin on an exception site in Penmayne, Cornwall. The proposed development of 6 one bedroom apartments, 14 two bedroom houses and 8 three bedroom houses are mixed tenure, affordable rent, shared ownership and open market. They are designed to provide much needed affordable housing options for local residents to be able to stay in the area.

Working with Lichfields, planning consultants and Patrick Parsons, engineers, DJD Architects have sensitively designed a scheme that works with the sloping site and draws upon local materials and building forms. The public consultation event, held earlier in the year, allowed feedback on a variety of layout and elevation options that steered the submitted design.

The proposals incorporate biodiversity enhancements, with retention of existing trees and hedge banks, new tree and hedge planting, wildflower meadow planting, bat and bird boxes. SUDs, sustainable drainage, was designed into the scheme from feasibility stage to work with the topography of the site.
