Ok some more details. There are in total 230 dwellings in the area including Pendra Loweth. Of these 121 or 53% did not have a ‘usual resident in the 2011 census. That is over half of the dwellings are not used to house people. Perhaps some of those commentators who assume that houses are built to house people
will take note! ignore the evidence as usual.
There are of course other areas where significant numbers of dwellings are not used to house people. This raises some important questions:
- Should the planning system be changed to limit the numbers of such dwellings?
- How many of the 47,500 planned new dwellings will end up in this category?
- Why the deafening silence from the main political parties about the issue?
- How much longer should we tolerate house building in nice areas which is off-limits to most Cornish residents?
