A wonderful development opportunity in a sought after location along a country lane on the outskirts of Launceston Town featuring planning permission to build five new dwellings. The plot is a substantial size and the permission includes planning for a detached house and four detached bungalows, all with gardens, parking and a garage.
The planning permission was granted on the 30th August 2019 under the application reference PA19/03696 with conditions. The site features a pleasant outlook looking across Launceston Town and the surrounding countryside. The access to the site is to the side where there is currently a gated access with a new road that will run into the cul-de-sac.
Launceston is an ancient town steeped in history with the imposing Castle overlooking the town and surrounding area. Referred to as “the gateway to Cornwall” Launceston is centred one mile west of the River Tamar, which constitutes almost the entire border between Cornwall and Devon, the A30 is ideally located on the fringe of Launceston connecting to the rest of Cornwall with great access to the beautiful Coastline alongside Plymouth and Exeter. The town itself offers a variety of individual businesses from boutiques to fine food shops, blending with occasional national outlets including Tesco, WH Smith and Costa coffee. Local facilities include a leisure centre, medical facilities and well regarded primary and secondary schooling.

The very impressive Launceston Castle dates from Norman times. Before the 13th century AD Launceston used to be the capital of the Earldom of Cornwall. Launceston has given its name to other places in the world including Australia. The Cornish name is Lannstefan and Lannstefan is Cornish for Church of St Stephen.
