Trewint Farm, Trewint, Launceston, Cornwall, PL15 7TG

Situated on the eastern edge of Bodmin Moor within the hamlet of Trewint, this site offers a wealth of opportunity. The site is currently occupied by a quaint detached cottage which now requires a programme of refurbishment as well as a redundant barn with planning for conversion into a detached three bedroom dwelling. There is also additional land to the north which has approved planning for a pair of well-proportioned detached three bedroom family houses each with an independent access point from The Terrace, off-road parking and garden space.


Planning Permissions have been granted by Cornwall County Council. Firstly, PA19/01322, dated 28 May 2019, for the conversion of the redundant barn into a three bedroom dwelling, subject to conditions. Secondly, under reference PA19/02813, dated 28 May 2019, for the construction of two No 3 bedroom dwellings, subject to conditions.

It is considered the site may offer potential for further residential development subject to all the necessary consents being obtainable. Pre-application advice with regard to this matter has been provided by the Local Planning Authority under ref: PA17/01934/PREAPP dated 18 August 2017.

A copy of the planning approvals, proposed plans and pre-application advice will be available to download from the Clive Emson Website or the Local Planning Authority website, cornwall.gov.uk.
