We recently set Shortlanesend Community Primary School up to the task of naming our upcoming Shortlanensend Development!

We organised a naming competition with the fantastic school, which resulted in the difficult decision of deciding the 1st-3rd Place winners!

We were delighted to award First Place to Haydon Penhallurick (pictured above) who chose the winning name ‘Penrose View!’ Laura O’Dowd achieved Second Place and Jenson Bray, Third Place. All winners received their worthy prizes of certificates and book vouchers! With ‘Penrose’ having strong ties to Cornish history and attractions, the lovely name ‘Penrose View’ was found to be particularly apt.

At the Awards Ceremony held in the school assembly. Haydon Penhallurick (1st Place), Laura O’Dowd (2nd Place) and Jenson Bray (3rd Place) were awarded their prizes of certificates and book vouchers.

Health and Safety Talk in the school assembly, conducted by Mike Crawford (Head of Construction) and Builder Mascot Ivor Goodsite.

After the awards ceremony, our Head of Construction Mike, and builder mascot, Ivor Goodsite (pictured left), conducted an all-important health and safety talk, informing the children about the hazards on building sites. With the school being in close proximity to our Penrose View development, we felt this was a big part of our responsibility as a developer.

Chad Wilson, Head of Shortlanesend C.P. School, commented on the competition:”The chance to name the new development on the outskirts of our village, was a wondrously generous and exciting opportunity for the children of Shortlanesend School. One child and their family will have the lifelong knowledge that their idea was successful, and will remain constantly on show as part of the fabric of the village for generations.” 

Colin Palmer, Managing Director of Burrington Estates New Homes, adds,“We are thrilled with the name and can’t thank Shortlanesend Community Primary School and all the children enough for their contributions.


“We are keen to progress with our strategic mission to develop high-quality properties in Cornwall. Shortlanesend ticked all the right boxes in terms of the site and location, helping us to create a fantastic development of family homes for the village and city of Truro, meeting the current local housing demand.


“Truro provides the perfect balance of both city and country living for homeowners and we look forward to progressing with our second development in Truro, at Trispen, which will provide even more choice for families in the county’s capital later in the year.


“We are passionate about delivering high quality homes and feel this development will be a great addition to Shortlanesend. It is an opportunity for families to purchase a new home in a rural village setting only 2.5 miles from the thriving city of Truro.”

Penrose View, due to start in September this year, will comprise of 28 distinctive 2,3 and 4 bedroom homes, situated in the beautiful, rural village of Shortlanesend which lies on the outskirts of Truro. The homes will be traditional, spacious and of high specification, and will benefit from picturesque views of the surrounding countryside.
