Design and community code

Each household in Nansledan is provided with a copy of the Duchy of Cornwall’s Design and Community Code.

This sets out a number of obligations upon owners and occupiers not to alter or extend the exterior of a property without the written approval of the Duchy of Cornwall. This is because each building in Nansledan has been carefully designed to achieve individuality and harmony within the overall masterplan concept of a traditional Cornish community.

The Design and Community Code is intended to give confidence to purchasers and occupiers that things will not change much, and if change is sought the Duchy will regulate things so as to maintain high standards for the benefit of all. Each quarter or neighbourhood of Nansledan will have its own distinctive Design and Community Code, and each will have its own unique emblem, which draws its inspiration from a close up view of the local grasses and plants in Cornwall.

“One of the reasons I have moved to Nansledan is the knowledge that any future development is governed by a design and community code that all residents sign up to. This provides comfort that the architectural integrity and quality of where we live will be maintained in perpetuity, and that’s important when choosing a new home” – John Williams, resident of Nansledan
