We note with interest the points raised by Dennis Kearn of Probus regarding proposed developments in the village and nearby Truro. He is correct “ever more homes, but housing need, if it really exists – never falls.” There is indeed a degree of housing need but the Home Choice Register over states the numbers in need. Never mind armed with the HCR figures developers gleefully apply for more housing, far more housing than is ever necessary to meet local need. Developers look for opportunities to develop and make a profit wherever they can. That has nothing to do with meeting housing need and anyone who thinks otherwise is sadly out of touch with reality or exhibiting a high degree of wishful thnking!
