2017 the assertions that you will hear!

During the year you will hear some or all of the following statements which are untrue!

House building is for local need – most of it is to allow/encourage people to move to Cornwall for lifestyle purposes

The waiting list represents a high level of housing need – most people on the list more accurately called the Home Choice Register do not require the construction of a new home

Planning restrictions prevent developers from building houses – what restrictions!

The Local Plan will prevent a rush of applications outside of areas allocated in the plan – well we will see but guess its unlikely

building more houses will reduce house prices – no evidence for that assertion at all. House prices are affected by a range of factors

House building will boost the economy – more houses more people more jobseekers – no better off than before.

Cornwall is not building any more houses pro rata than on average – incorrect
