Dating back to Celtic times the whole of Launceston is steeped in history and is dominated by its Castle. Originally known as Dunheved, the castle was an impressive and strategically important building that controlled the river crossing in and out of Cornwall.

Launceston, the ancient capital of and acknowledged gateway to Cornwall sits astride the A30 one mile from the Devon/Cornwall border, in an area of considerable beauty and charm. It is a busy market town with numerous shops and businesses located in and around the only walled town in Cornwall.

The Towns current population is in the region of 7000 with outline planning permissions for some 200 new homes. Launceston now supports four large residential estates offering a diverse community.

The Town centre has recently seen a change with the Square being pedestrianized. This has sparked many debates within the Town with strong opinions for and against.

Launceston Neighbourhood Team enjoys strong links with local strategic partners and works closely with Launceston Pubwatch, Launceston Road Safety Partnership and Launceston Play Strategy.

Launceston police are currently working with the Forum and the Chamber of Commerce to have the Town covered by CCTV. We are lucky enough to boast good crime figures although we suffer locally with a high perception of crime, which we hope CCTV will reduce.
