Great news for all the teams involved that Nansledan has been recognised by the National Urban Design Awards 2021 as a winner in the category 'Framework + Masterplan Large'. This is a great achievement for all everyone involved in this project, including our client The Duchy of Cornwall, house builders CG Fry & Son, Morrish Homes and Wainhomes, civil engineering consultant AWP and landscape architect Fabrik, and architects ALA Architects, Purl Design and Yiangou Architects.
Nansledan is a 218-hectare mixed-use, mixed-tenure, sustainable urban extension to Newquay. As a genuine walkable community, residents of Nansledan can meet their daily needs on foot, while also having strong physical connections with Newquay to bolster the town and its socio-economic performance.
The judges commented, "Where most new developments provide no more than housing, Nansledan is a genuine piece of townmaking. The project is compact, walkable, and when complete will offer a wide range of on-site jobs and facilities. The use of the Development Control Order planning model looks set to streamline delivery, while ensuring a high quality outcome."
