These 130 homes, some affordable, are the first phase of a 218ha extension to Newquay which will evolve into a 4,000-home community with its own high street, school, public spaces and facilities. It draws on the local vernacular to capture the spirit of Newquay’s urban fabric – supported by the Newquay Pattern Book and a building code shaped by public consultation. In the interests of sustainability, identity and assisting the regional economy, local resources and materials have been preferred: granite for kerb stones, cobbles, lintels and steps, and boundary walls sourced from De Lank Quarry on Bodmin Moor. Sustainable materials used include  blocks made from recycled aggregate or China Clay waste and the reuse of construction waste.
