National Urban Design Award 2021 for Nansledan, Newquay

November 30, 2021

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."
