Plan for housing and food in the Duchy of Cornwall land considered as sprawl


plan, including Prince Charles, who advertised as a unique project that will allow local food producers can compete with the giant supermarkets and offer valuable case.

opponents support the development of a food court and a luxury residential complex on farmland owned by the Duchy of Cornwall Prince ruining the economy of a city and destroy a fragile beautiful valley and productive.

They argue that the regime on the edge of Truro is both an example of urban sprawl of Prince says he hates and type of development outside the city that the retail guru The Prime Minister, Mary Portas, is in trouble.

In the center of a conflict that has divided the city of Cornwall is only the Eastern District of Truro Center (LARC) scheme proposed by a group including the Duchy of Cornwall and the council of Waitrose supermarkets.

If the proposals are productivity advantage of cultivated land to support a good herd, hedges and trees within a mile of downtown replaced by the Center for Food Cornwall - a housing solution echo model of Prince Poundbury Village in Dorset controversial areas -. with a park and ride and the recycling center

The Duchy and its partners in the declaration of the park and ride will lead to a reduction in traffic towards Truro and claim the recycling center will be an important addition to city services.

Vella added that the revision of the street Portas, published last month was necessary in part because this type of development that damaged the urban centers.
