LHC were commissioned by Homes England to design a masterplan for 42 new homes in Camborne, working closely with town planners, Bell Cornwell and consulting engineers, Pell Frischman.
The Kerrier Way development, which was awarded outline consent in late 2018, will occupy two facing parcels of land in Dolcoath. These sit at the entrance to a much larger residential re-development of the CompAir Holman factory site, also designed by LHC in 2007.
Urban Design & Masterplanning
The new Kerrier Way development, which is being progressed by Homes England, comprises 42 two-bedroom new homes that will meet planning policy requirements in delivering both 30% affordable and 70% market homes to meet local demand.
The design is a simple structure of perimeter blocks based around a central courtyard and reflects good practice in urban design. The development will have a strong residential frontage with deep front gardens and a distinctive and attractive sense of place, prioritising pedestrians over cars.
Homes will be a mix of apartments and houses, designed to minimise energy use. They will be contemporary in design, using locally distinctive materials such as slate, stone and render with low Cornish hedge or stone wall boundaries.
