Carbis Bay, St Ives, Cornwall
Porthia Properties and Gonwin Developments Ltd
Lavigne Lonsdale were appointed by both Porthia Homes and Gonwin developments Ltd to create a Masterplan for an new urban extension to Carbis Bay on the edge of the St Ives bay. The site has fantastic views across the bay and a sensitive solution was developed to improve both the entrance into Carbis Bay and create more local retail and leisure facilities, 50% affordable housing, new sports pitches for local teams, new doctors surgery and employment space. The Outline application (produced by LL with RLT Architects) was supported by a Design Code that LL produced. The scheme went to a Public Inquiry in December 2015 and we await the Inspectors decision.
