Go-ahead for Wadebridge's new housing estate
A new housing estate is scheduled to be built in Wadebridge in the new year.
Linden Homes has gained consent from Cornwall Council to construct 48 homes, a proportion of which will be affordable housing.
The company says the exact number of affordable homes will depend on agreements still to be determined with the local authority.
The approval of plans follows discussions with the council last year and a public exhibition at the beginning of this year.
The houses will be built at West Hill and connect to the northern end of Trevanson Road.
The housing firm says the development will offer a range of energy-efficient, two, four and five-bedroom homes, including much-needed affordable homes for the community.
A spokeswoman said: "The look and feel of the development will incorporate the materials and styles of the surrounding area as well as retaining existing hedgerows and stone wall boundaries.
"Residents will also benefit from new cycle and pedestrian routes, and recreational areas, taking full advantage of the Camel Trail and Camel Estuary location," she said.
Managing director Nigel Palmer said: "This is great news for Wadebridge."
