To reflect the site’s location on the boundary of Cubert and Perranzabuloe parishes, the housing need of both areas has been
Taken into account. Perranzabuloe has a substantial need, with 211 Households listed on Cornwall HomeChoice with a local connection
and Cubert has 34 households with a local connection.
There are some questions to be answered here – are the figures above all of those on the HCR or those in actual need?
[Previous analysis has suggested that most people on the HCR are already houses, therefore there is not a need for 245 extra houses in these two parishes!].
The planning permission includes the following: A financial contribution of £306,432 towards the construction or extension of education infrastructure facilities at Cubert CP Primary School.
But if those in housing need already live in the area,(we assume that most do), the children are already being provided for in the area so there is no need for extra school capacity?
What this really tells us is that most of the houses will be for people moving into the area and the extra capacity is to meet the extra (non-local) demand!
