The TCPA has a long history of running study tours – these have provided opportunities to visit inspirational places, meet those involved in their planning and development, and discuss the successes as well as the challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic means that these visits are not currently possible, so instead the TCPA is running a series of place-specific online events. Each will explore how a large-scale development was planned for and built, and what lessons can be learnt from this. 

Cornwall has an ambitious programme for creating new places and this masterclass foster a conversation between the key players from a variety of developments in Cornwall, including West Carclaze, Langarth and Nansledan. They will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the different approaches taken, the challenges faced and the lessons that have been learnt along the way. 

This event will offer an invaluable learning opportunity for all those working on large scale new developments, or indeed anyone who would like to learn about the planning and delivery of successful new communities.
