Policy: PZ-H8, Heamoor, Site area: 15.5 hectares, Allocation: Approx. 435 dwellings
a) A residential development, delivering approximately 435 dwellings,
incorporating public open space and ancillary community facilities. At least 25% of the dwellings should be provided as ‘accessible homes’; plus some of the dwellings should be specialised housing (including extra care housing).
d) The development should create a community ‘hub’ which represents a focus for the new and existing residents. The hub should contain community facilities appropriate for a residential area (e.g. community hall, small shop, etc). The hub should be located in a position that the existing Heamoor community would also be able to easily access.
Why so many houses for Penzance? Local need – not really – most will be open market – anyone from Penrith to Peckham can buy if they wish.
A community hub with a shop? We think people will be shopping at the out of town shops or using the internet.
