Par Docks

Eco-town promoter and internationally experienced town developer and operator Orascom Development, together with its joint venture partners, Imerys Minerals and the Eden Project, in 2010 launched a three-day exhibition and public consultation to share future plans for the development of Par Docks.

A new name was also unveiled for the joint venture company which will deliver the project – Eco-Bos – taking its identity from Eco, representing the commitment to sustainability throughout the project, and Bos, from the Celtic or Cornish word for home.

The Eco-Bos proposals will create one of the most sustainable new communities in Europe, by re-developing six former china clay sites owned by Imerys to provide more than 5,000 homes (of which up to 40% will be affordable), up to 5,000 new jobs, a sustainable transport infrastructure, utilise renewable energies and provide leisure facilities and green space.
