The Prince of Wales has unveiled his plans to tackle homelessness on the Duchy of Cornwall land.

The project will address homelessness in Nansledan, Newquay, alongside the Cornish charity St Petrocs. It will provide 24 homes with support from local people.

The land for the homes will be provided by the Duchy of Cornwall, and development is set to begin in September 2024. The first home will be completed in the autumn of 2025.

Ben Murphy, Estate Director of the Duchy of Cornwall, said, “As one of his key priorities for the Duchy of Cornwall, Prince William asked us to address the homelessness challenge within Cornwall and other areas where the estate resides. Today, we are excited to reveal plans for the innovative housing project to help break the cycle of homelessness in the Newquay area. Partnering with St Petrocs, and with support and expertise from Homewards and an active local community, we will be helping people rebuild their lives, with training and employment opportunities alongside the provision of more permanent housing that we are building in Nansledan.”
