Local housing provider Sanctuary has delivered 37 much-needed new affordable homes in the picturesque Cornwall village of Mitchell.

The high-quality £7.5m Coachers Way development features a mixture of two to four-bedroom houses and one and two-bedroom apartments for affordable rent, as well as 10 two, three and four-bedroom properties for shared ownership.

Sanctuary has worked closely with Cornwall Council and St. Newlyn East Parish Council to deliver the project, which has been part funded by Homes England. The new homes have been built by Sanctuary’s local contractor, Classic Builders.

David Soothill, Sanctuary’s Director of Development – England, said: “We know there is an established need for more affordable housing in Cornwall, and it’s great to see Coachers Way completed and delivering high-quality new homes for people in Mitchell.

“As well as working to meet the local housing need, we’re also very pleased to be helping people in Cornwall take their first steps onto the housing ladder through shared ownership.

“We’ve been delighted with the positive response to Coachers Way and that has been reflected in the amount of interest that we have received.”
