The symbiosis between tourism and housing demand: Retallack Property Services of Truro, who seem to have the same directors as local developers Westcountry Land, are applying to remove the condition that stops them using their new holiday lodges at St Columb for permanent residential occupation. The 334 lodges would, they say, be ‘aimed specifically at the second home/holiday let sector’, thus easing pressure on the existing housing stock. Sounds plausible. Or is it? Would marketing the extra supply merely create more demand? [PA16/06369]
Perhaps the 334 figure would be taken off the housing target?
We think not!
