A spectre haunts Cornwall!

A spectre haunts Cornwall, the steady spread of developments whether in town or country, coastal or inland, there they are in every settlement, indeed dwarfing settlements. And for what purpose? No, they don’t provide housing to meet housing need and they don’t provide jobs, they are just part of the unsustainable and seemingly unstoppable process of needless growth.

A good example is cited on ‘It’s Our Cornwall’

As they run into more opposition in the towns, are Wainhomes turning to our villages? The’re talking to the planners about building 130 houses at St Cleer (40% ‘affordable’ plus open space offered). Why so many? The population of St Cleer has already more than doubled since the 1960s. Doesn’t it deserve a breathing space? (PA15/00073/PREAPP)
