Cornwall Council says it has delivered on its promise to build a 1000 new homes for residents throughout Cornwall.

The new home, which is the 1000th to be built, has been completed by Vistry Partnerships, in partnership with Cornwall Council and LiveWest at the former Penwith Council office site at St. Clare in Penzance.

The property, which is being marketed for sale by LiveWest to eligible households, is a three-bedroom house and is available for shared ownership.

Cornwall Council has worked with local housing associations, town, parish and local councillors and partners to provide solutions to Cornwall's local housing needs.

Cornwall Council Portfolio Holder for Homes, Andrew Mitchell, said: “Four years ago, our commitment to provide 1,000 quality new homes to meet the different needs of our residents was at the top of the list of priorities.

“We’ve put in the hard work, planning, funding and resources to make sure we delivered and enabled quality homes – including a large amount of social and affordable housing – and have created a model to continue delivery on an even larger scale over coming years.”

"Some homes are for social rent and shared ownership in our Housing Revenue Account,which is what used to be known as council housing.

"We’ve built 112 new homes in the HRA since 2017 and we are currently on-site building or in contract to deliver a further 144, with 21 in the planning system.

"Others are for secure long-term market rent or for open market sale through our partnership company, Treveth."
