On 11th December Cornwall Council will decide on its housing target for the next 20 years. Councillors will be asked to support a motion to build 48,500 houses out of which only 20% will be affordable.We feel that 48,500 is much too high a figure, it is unnecessary, unsustainable and to support inward migration.
However, Councillors will also have the chance to vote on a lower number of 38,000 and as these are the only two options we obviously want our councillors to vote for 38,000,although Trelawney Alliance still think that this number is still far too high.
TELL YOUR COUNCILLORS HOW YOU FEEL AND ASK FOR A RECORDED VOTE ON DECEMBER 11th SO WE CAN SEE WHO IS STANDING UP FOR CORNWALL.
