New group to oppose greenfield bid


"To be effective any action group should be aware of the need to work with other groups in the area and also across Cornwall. The housing targets imposed through the Regional Spatial Strategy, ultimately deriving from central Government, are of common concern. Though local groups are, understandably, concerned about their ‘back yard’, this must not manifest itself in a ‘we don’t want it here, but why not put it in Redruth or Camborne or Carn Brea or St. Day’ approach. All communities must work together for the good of the wider community."

 Random Information. 
 The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 was a popular uprising by the people of Cornwall in the far south west of Britain. Its primary cause was the raising of war taxes by King Henry VII on the impoverished Cornish for a campaign against Scotland, motivated by brief border skirmishes that were inspired by Perkin Warbeck's pretence to the English throne. Tin miners were angered as the scale of the taxes violated previous rights granted by Edward I of England to the Cornish Stannary Parliament which exempted Cornwall from all taxes of 10ths or 15ths of income. The Cornish had little sympathy for English wars against Scotland, considering that most Cornish were not English speakers at that time.
