Cornwall Council elections – housing issues to consider

Today is election day.

There are some basic points you need to remember when looking at claims that we need to build lots more houses in Cornwall:

1) Most demand comes from people moving to Cornwall rather than local need;

2) The demand for second homes/holiday homes means many houses are not used to house people;

3) Building more houses will not result in lower house prices;

4) There are far more houses than households in Cornwall;

5) Building more houses does not boost the economy or create more jobs!

And – has your candidate agreed to the pledges in ‘A Charter for Cornwall’?
