MK Back "Our Cornwall"
Over twenty Mebyon Kernow members were present at the launch of the “Our Cornwall” pressure group at New County Hall today.

“Our Cornwall” brings together members of groups from throughout Cornwall who are opposing unsustainable housing developments. Together they are opposing the construction of 48,000 housing units over the next 20 years.
 
The group says the proposals will lead to “massive estates on green field sites, soulless car-dependent suburbs, more traffic congestion, more pollution, declining town centres, irreversible environmental damage and significant loss of increasingly valuable agricultural land.”
 
A spokesman for the group delivered a letter from 43 Cornish organizations, including Mebyon Kernow, to the Chairman of Cornwall Council.
 
MK Leader Cllr Dick Cole has welcomed the formation of the group and will tomorrow be chairing an important meeting of the Planning Policy Panel, where Cornwall’s housing target for 2010-2030 will be debated. He will be leading calls for a lower housing target.
