To: The Prime Minister
The SW Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) aims to massively increase house-building in Cornwall over the next twenty years.



1. We object to the construction of 68,700 new properties in the next twenty years which would mean the equivalent of one new house for every four existing properties in Cornwall.

2. Cornwall is being expected to take a disproportionate share of new housing. Across the whole of the Government’s ‘South West region,’ the proposed increase in housing would be 23%. In Cornwall, the new figures would represent an increase of 53%.

3. This will have an unacceptable impact on our environment, Cornwall’s communities and infrastructure.

4. We consider it is unacceptable how a handful of people in unelected and unaccountable SW quangos can come up with such ridiculous proposals which, if allowed to proceed, will do great harm to Cornwall, our local environment and infrastructure - the residents of Cornwall should have a choice in the matter !

5. These unsustainable and undemocratic proposals have little to do with tackling the dire affordable housing crisis in Cornwall but are about promoting unsustainable house-building for its own sake.

6. We, the undersigned, call on central government to allow Cornwall’s democratically elected representatives to decide what is right for our area and to deliver a housing strategy that focuses on providing affordable homes to meet local needs, instead of promoting unsustainable house-building for its own sake.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to reject the plan from unelected South West quangos to construct 68,700 new properties in Cornwall over the next twenty years and agree that Cornwall's housing strategy should be determined exclusively by democratically elected Cornish politicians, responsive to the needs and aspirations of the people whom they are elected to serve: http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/cornwallhousing/

 Random Information. 
 1997 was the 500th anniversary of the An Gof uprising and a commemorative march (Keskerdh Kernow 500) was held, which retraced the route of the original march from St Keverne, Cornwall via Guildford to London. A statue depicting An Gof and Flamank was unveiled at An Gof's home town of St. Keverne and a commemorative plaque was also unveiled at Blackheath.
