Climbing Hanger Planning Approval gained

Congratulations to the team for obtaining a complicated change of use planning approval from general industrial (Class B2) to assembly and leisure (Class D2) (indoor rock climbing centre) with minor external alterations and rationalisation of external works car parking.

Well done!  Looking forward to having a go on the bouldering section!

Your chance to step inside shipping container student accommodation

Residents are being offered the opportunity to step inside innovative housing which is being proposed for a brownfield site in Penryn.

An application to house 264 students in recycled and renovated shipping containers on the Kernick Industrial Estate has already been submitted to Cornwall Council, along with proposals for a health centre and surgery in the former Home Shed building on the site.

And the developer, Irregular Cornwall, will be taking one of the units on tour later this month.

The containers are environmentally-friendly, affordable and would help to ease the pressure from students on local housing in Falmouth and Penryn.

Irregular Cornwall Ltd presents at the Cornwall Design Review Panel

A bold scheme that provides a new solution to deliver affordable student residential units on an industrial estate at Kernick Road, Penryn.  Aim to produce a high quality contemporary design that can be delivered in a way that can manage environmental issues including heat conservation, noise insulation, solar gain, all within a modified shipping container
