The ‘Local plan’ – flawed data, unfounded assertions, a lack of councillor concern and underlined by a pro-growth agenda!

‘Cornwall – a developers’s paradise’ has set out the history so far of the long-drawn out process of the ‘local plan’ process that culminated in an unsustainable and unnecessary housing target.

What do we learn?

1) The lack of a coordinated and coherent opposition to higher numbers;

2) The use of flawed data to support the plan;

3) Rejection of the lower numbers largely supported by community groups and individuals;

4) Persistent push for higher numbers at officer level;

5) An underlying pro-growth agenda which sees housing and population growth as a ‘good thing’, in some bizarre way aiding the economy.
