Government names proposed West Carclaze “eco-community” as a garden village
Plans to build 1,500 homes in the china clay area of West Carclaze have been boosted today (Monday 2nd January) by the government’s announcement that the site is to be designated a “garden village” – attracting additional taxpayer support.
The proposed development was first announced as an “eco community” in 2014 but swiftly ran into local opposition. No decision on the planning application is expected before the summer of 2017.
The Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has today included West Carclaze on a list of 14 sites which will benefit from a £6 million fund to support their delivery.
