"We are working with Peter Matravers and Dan Hart and their team at AWP at both of the large Duchy of Cornwall developments at Poundbury, Dorchester and Nansledan, Newquay. The latest piece of the masterplan jigsaw at Nansledan has been working up a detailed planning submission for the proposed primary school. Both Peter and Dan have added their expertise to the project team to enable this to be worked up and submitted within 10 weeks."

Skol Nanseldan site progress


It's good to see that construction of the new primary school at Nansledan has progressed well over the summer. The 14-classroom Skol Nansledan is due to open in a year's time and will be the latest addition to the rapidly growing urban extension of Newquay.

We helped secure planning permission for the school earlier on this year and since then have undertaken the infrastructure design to enable contractor Midas to start on site. As can be seen from the progress photos above, the school is taking shape with the erection of the steel frame.
