Cornwall Council Core strategy is not sustainable
In its response to Cornwall Council’s consultation on its Core Strategy, Mebyon Kernow has branded Cornwall’s future planning blueprint to be unsustainable.

In its response to Cornwall Council’s consultation on its Core Strategy, Mebyon Kernow has branded Cornwall’s future planning blueprint to be unsustainable.

In a statement issued today, the Party for Cornwall stated:

“Cornwall Council claims that the Core Strategy would put ‘cultural distinctiveness at the heart of place shaping.’ The document is also littered with claims, for example, about taking a ‘lead on the green agenda,’ ‘tackling issues such as climate change,’ and delivering ‘affordable homes, jobs and infrastructure while safeguarding the environment.’

“But the claims to be ‘green’ or ‘sustainable’ are false and undermined by Cornwall Council’s commitment to unsustainable levels of housing growth and the development of, at least, 48,000 new properties over the next twenty years.

“Mebyon Kernow is seeking a breathing space from the large-scale development of open market properties and calls for the prioritisation of affordable local-needs housing.”
