Woss on? Reading all this Core Strategy traade’s maken’ me sum maazed, I’ll tell ‘ee.
Seem’me, they boays over to planning d’reelly believe all these new houses are ‘sustainable’. They got one o’ they SWOT analyses in their housen’ grawth paaper. ‘An ‘ee d’say that one o’ the strengths of building 52,800 houses will be
slightly higher than business as usual
Slightly higher? Dunnaw ‘bout that but it dun seem zackly right as they also say ‘tis a
20% increase on the level of growth experienced over the last few years
Turns out another strength of building 48,000 or even 57,000 properties for they from upalong comen’ downalong is
some impact on the environment and some green field land would be needed – but not as much for higher growth options
Gizzon, those boays can sartn’ly spin a tale or two, I d’b’leev. There’s 596 pages of ‘sustainability appraisal’ to prove et. Turns out all they new houses and roads and such trade will in the long run (which we d’knaw as dreckly) ‘av a negative impact on soil, water, biodiversity and the maritime environment. Seems
the Core Strategy does not perform well in meeting the environmental objectives for Cornwall
But they reck’n it’s a proper job for most everything else. The plaace may be scat to larrups but my gar, we’m goen’ t’be some socially inclusive, live in fine hupstanding houses and able to drive over ta Trura from Porthemmet whenever we fancy. So ‘ee cain’t be too bad neow, can’ee?
Gotta go lie down neow as all this is making me feel sum wisht. Cheers, pard, ‘av a braa’ weekend!
