Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth – the horror that awaits!

The Local Plan site allocations document states:

5.29 The delivery of good quality housing that meets future demand forms a key strand of the overall strategy for CPIR. Historically housing growth in CPIR has been stimulated by the area’s economic prosperity and whilst there are other pressure that are driving the need to plan for housing growth, there is still the desire for economic growth and housing growth to come forward in a complementary manner.

5.30 The Cornwall LP:SP document has targeted the delivery of 5,200 dwellings in CPIR between 2010 and 2030.

Oh dear – CPIR – what a term! Did the residents of this constellation of settlements ever agree to this horrible name? Probably not.

Well in the dim and distant past housing and economic growth went hand in hand. But now housing is based on in-migration to the area and job provision is largely to keep up with this. Its now population not economy led.

And 5,200 dwellings? To meet future demand but not from the residents of Camborne, Redruth and the adjacent villages!
