Urban Terrace Homes, Callington

Work on Cornwall Council’s scheme to build 15 new affordable homes for local people in Callington is underway, with the first residents expected to move into their new homes in late 2023.

The new homes, which are being built at Urban Terrace, replace 10 council-owned and 5 privately owned homes built in the 1959’s. The properties had to be demolished following identification of Mundic, which was gradually making them structurally unsound.

The new scheme will provide 4 one-bedroom flats, 7 two-bedroom houses and 4 three-bedroom houses with gardens and parking. All the homes will be highly insulated and heated with low carbon air source heat pumps.

As well as providing the 15 new homes, the scheme will also include landscaping and tree planting, with bee bricks and bird boxes being used as part of the landscaping process to increase biodiversity.
