The first turf has been cut at a new development of 18 affordable homes in Crowntown near Helston.
The properties will be a mix of flats and houses and the scheme will include an area of public space and a school car park.
The new development will offer 12 properties for affordable rent and six for part-buy part-rent, to help local people get a foot on the property ladder with a shared ownership home.
Matt Ward, Head of Development at Coastline Housing said: “This development will be next to the local school playing field and is expected to satisfy the demand for housing need in the Sithney parish for the foreseeable future.”
Social landlord Coastline Housing has secured more than £500,000 of funding from the Homes and Communities Agency to develop the properties. The homes are due for completion early next year.
