Feb 19, 2024

London [UK], February 19: Britain's Prince William has announced plans to build homes on duchy of Cornwall land to tackle homelessness in the south-west of England.
Working with Cornish homelessness charity St Petrocs, the project will provide 24 homes in Nansledan, Newquay, with "wraparound support" for local people experiencing homelessness to create a path to a permanent home. The development of "high quality temporary accommodation that feels like home" is due to begin in September with the first homes expected to be completed in the autumn of next year, according to a statement from the estate.
The Duchy of Cornwall is a portfolio of land, property and investments valued at more than £1bn, which provide an income for the heir to the throne. In an interview last year, William, who is the duke of Cornwall was asked if there were plans for affordable housing on his duchy of Cornwall land and replied: "There is. Absolutely. Social housing. You'll see that when it's ready."
