Withnoe Farm proposals
Wainhomes said 40% of the proposed homes would be affordable

Plans to build 129 new homes on land in Launceston in Cornwall have been unveiled at a public exhibition.

Developer Wainhomes said it wanted to build on land at Withnoe Farm that had already allocated for housing in the Launceston Town Framework.

The town has to build a minimum of 1,500 homes over 20 years to meet housing obligations.

Wainhomes said 40% of the planned homes would be affordable. The proposals have yet to go before local planners.

Launceston Town Council said its town framework steering group, led by Cornwall Council, was "currently developing strategies for the expansion of Launceston to 2030 to meet future employment and housing needs".
