Ahli United Bank Acquire Durham Student Accommodation
25th Sep 2018
Developers have submitted plans to create a 2,000-bed student village at Treluswell near Penryn.
Development company Ocean Reach Ltd has applied for outline planning permission to build a mixed-use site, named Penvose Student Village.
Located on 20 hectares of land between Treluswell Hill and the A39, the development would consist of student accommodation able to house 2,000 students along with up to 400 student parking spaces. The site will also come equipped with a 450-place park-and-ride, sports facilities and a student commercial area including shops, restaurants, university office space and a GP surgery.
If given the go ahead the site, which encircles a group of houses by the A39, would require a new roundabout access from the road. There will also be improved cycle routes to the campus and Penryn town centre via Treliever.
According to the design and access statement submitted as part of the application, the village would provide "essential infrastructure" to support the university, as well as "significant employment opportunities".
CAD Architects acting on behalf of the developers said: "The proposed development seeks to present a modern, efficient and exemplary student village development which is highly respectful of its semi-rural/open countryside setting, seeking to minimise the impact of the scheme on the local landscape both spatially and visually."
The application is set to be determined by April 13.
