Newquay – real housing need!

It is implied/assummed that for each household on the Homechoice Register you need to build a house.

That is incorrect. From analysis of the HCR we find that at least half of all those on the HCR are generally considered to be adequately housed.

This means that at least 500 households are adequately housed and should not be included in the total; of the remaining 500, 400 are already living in accommodation and do not all require a new dwelling to be built for them. That means out of 1,000 we actually need to build no more than 100 new dwellings!

If we are honest the main aim of the housebuilding at Newquay has nothing to do with meeting housing need and all to do with pursuing an unsustainable growth policy from which developers gain considerably!
