Misuse of data – again!

Justin Dodge of Westcountry Land said: “Not only will this deliver much needed family and affordable housing in the Falmouth area, but also fantastic new facilities and financial security for Falmouth Rugby Club. “More than 1,000 families are currently on the waiting list for an affordable home in the Falmouth and Budock area and this project will make a significant difference.”


Oh dear – misuse of the Homechoice Register data again! There may be 1,000 families on the HCR wrongly called the ‘waiting list’ but and we suspect that Westcountry Land know it too, we do not need to build 1,000 dwellings.

But if you are a developer wanting to build houses you are going to go for a figure which helps your case whether it is a misleading figure or not!
