Ah yes we need to build more houses, that’s what the ‘Local Plan’ says.
And why – well you might think its because there is a need from local residents. You would be wrong. One reason is the loss of dwellings to the holiday sector. There were around 600 houses in and around Porthtowan in 2011. At least ten per cent are holiday lets! We are building house for the holiday lets sector!! Ridiculous!
