Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall has launched a petition against proposals in the ‘Regional Spatial Strategy for the South West’ (RSS) to massively increase house-building in Cornwall.

HERE

A great idea..

It would be a good idea to collect email addresses along with name/address/signature for future ref and a cheap way of contacting the people whose support you've gained.

I think Cornwall needs more houses, but for certain people!

I think the residents of Cornwall should have a choice in the matter...

I think the Cornish need to set up housing associations, with appropriate rules on sales etc.

This is how it was decided, as shown in the 'independent Panel' report on the SWRA RSS :

"The draft RSS allocates 31,600 dwellings to the West Cornwall HMA and the 2003 DCLG (Dept of Communities and Local Government) projections indicate that 48,807 are required (the 2004 projections indicate 49,930). This is a substantial difference and cannot simply be set aside. The details discussed at the EiP do not explain why there is such a mismatch. It seems to us that the desirability of wanting to live (retire, own a second home or move for economic or lifestyle reasons) must be a substantial part of the need for housing in Cornwall. It also follows that turning off the supply tap of new houses would not make that need to away.

Cornwall County Council's advice on the distribution of the increased housing requirement for the purposes of the RSS suggested that the County could accommodate 52,800 in all. The figure includes 8,800 for North Cornwall and 7,000 for Caradon which are in other HMAs. This leaves 37,000 for the West Cornwall HMA, which is above the draft RSS figure of 31,600, but still well below the 48,807 suggested by DCLG 2003 projection. We cannot identify any reason not to make provision at DCLG 2003 levels in this HMA, and not to do so would be unlikely to drive demand elsewhere, and would thus add to increasing housing stress among the established population. We have therefore searched for additional capacity throughout the HMA, while maintaining the strategy focus on the SSCTs."

Cornwall has been divided territorially, Cornwall Council's (controversially high) projections have been overruled and the DCLG recommendations accepted without adjustment, and 'the desirability of wanting to ...own a second home...must be a substantial part of the need for housing in Cornwall'. No provision is made elsewhere in the report for an infrastructure to support the surfeit of new houses and their occupants.

Shaz, my understanding is that the SWRDA is just one quango and that it is separate from the SWRA.

Thanks Kerrow...Does this mean they want to build most of these houses so that some people can have two homes?

How can this government be taken seriously on ecological issues when an unrestricted number of foreigners and incomers are allowed access?
Our country(kernow) is already vastly overcrowded, now eco towns? in the china clay?
This is madness.

No to 70,000 new Cornish houses by 2026

The Secretary of State has released the latest version of the South West Regional Spatial Strategy for formal consultation. In it, there are proposals for 68,200 new houses for Cornwall to 2026.

Produced by the unelected SW Regional Assembly, the original document projected the construction of 45,000 new houses in Cornwall between 2006 and 2026. An ‘Examination in Public’ by an unelected and unaccountable panel contained the bombshell that 68,700 houses should be built in Cornwall which has been largely endorsed by the same Secretary of State that imposed a unitary authority on Cornwall.

I have condemned the announcement and made the point that these unsustainable proposals would have a disastrous effect on Cornwall, our local environment and infrastructure.

These ridiculous proposals are not about tackling the affordable housing crisis in Cornwall but promoting unsustainable house-building for its own sake.

Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall is calling on local people to respond to the consultation in great numbers.

Comments can be made through an online consultation portal at: http://www.gosw.gov.uk/

A paper response form is also available and can be downloaded from the GOSW website or requested from the Government Office Regional Spatial Team (0117 900 1705; email rssconsult@gosw.gsi.gov.uk).

Forms can be sent: by email to rssconsult@gosw.gsi.gov.uk; by fax to 0117 900 1914 or by post to: Regional Planning Team, Government Office for the South West, 2 Rivergate, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6ED

The closing date for the consultation is 5.00pm on 17th October 2008.
