All of the news about the housebuilding around Truro (it’s hardly in Truro is it?), in the media, misses the point about how many new houses are needed.
We have estimated actual need according to changes in household size and meeting the needs of those without housing.
We estimate that the maximum required for Truro would be 1,310 with a lower figure of 510.
So instead of talking about 3,500 houses – we should be aiming for a far lower target and to borrow a phrase from the Donald – lets stop granting excessive planning permissions until we know ‘what the hell is going on in Cornwall’!
