Housing madness at Wadebridge!


From ‘It’s Our Cornwall’

This utterly insane scheme for 650 houses on 28ha of farmland at Egloshayle, Wadebridge, backed by Cornwall Council’s planners, is taking another step forward. Progress Land Ltd of Taunton have commissioned an EIA for this ‘sustainable well-connected new neighbourhood for Wadebridge which would address the need for additional housing whilst providing local amenities required to support growth’ [PA16/03718]

Andy why 650 houses?

In 2011 there were 3,151 household spaces of which 196 or 6% were either second homes/holiday lets/vacant

And 650 – thats an extra 21% increase! Do we need that many additional houses for Wadebridge? No of course not.
