What to ask council candidates

Candidates for the forthcoming council elections are already roaming the land, dropping leaflets through letter boxes in an effort to get elected.

The ‘A Charter for Cornwall’ group is working hard to find out what candidates think about the housing issue with the option of signing up to the four pledges.


If you meet a candidate you can ask if they support the Charter, if not why not.

You may be told that we need more houses, because:

There are lots of people on the waiting list,
More houses mean lower house prices;
It will create more jobs;
What about future generations?;
It will be good for the economy;
There is plenty of space for new houses.

and others!

Over the next few days we will be looking at these assertions and rebutting them. Keep the answers on hand, you may need them!
