Another day, another ploy – but same old house building really!

Another proposal for more housing dressed up in the language of sustainability! In reality of course its another ploy by developers to get more houses built! They never tire of special pleading!

Living Villages (adviser former Lib Dem MP Matthew Taylor) has applied to build 155 houses here at Higher Newham, Truro. This is going to be a ‘sustainable community farm and village’ and a ‘Cornish village’, not yet another tedious Truro mega-suburb. Oh, and with shops, restaurant, studios, holiday lets. 30% of the houses will be ‘affordable’, but only half of those are for rent. In return 74 acres will be gifted to a partnership of Duchy College and the Cornwall Food Foundation.
