Tacky Tory Toff Tactic To Screw Communities And The Land

Post by TeamKernow » Fri Jul 23, 2010 1:27 pm

:idea: Whatever next! :idea: The Tories have conjured up a sly and crafty scheme - no doubt in cahoots with their conCRETIN' corporate cronies - to suffocate the land with concrete'ntarmac'nasphalt and increase the risk of flood to established settlements under the guise of pretended generosity while desperately hanging on to the misappropriated and misused residential housing they have grabbed for taking holidays.
Housing Minister Grant Shapps has the brass neck and affrontery to spout: ' I want to give communities the power to preserve their villages, which are currently struggling to survive because of a shortage of affordable homes.' Of course, Mr Shapps conveniently forgets that Cornwall's fictitious housing 'shortage' has been caused directly by non-residents buying up Cornwall's residential housing for taking holidays while at the same time inflating house 'values' beyond the reach of Cornish workers, young people and young families. There is a much simpler, more efficient, quicker to implement and far less destructive 'sustainable' solution - BAN OR TAX ANTI-SOCIAL AND ANTI-COMMUNITY 'SECOND'/'THIRD'/'FOURTH'/'FIFTH' 'Homes' residential housing mis-use into OBLIVION .

Currently there are:

1.Over 16,000 formerly residential houses in Cornwall & Scilly that have been decommissioned and removed from the residential housing supply by non-residents for taking holidays.
2.circa 6,000 houses in Cornwall & Scilly standing EMPTY.
(Across the UK there are circa 1,000,000 houses standing empty.)

THERE IS NO RESIDENTIAL HOUSING SHORTAGE IN CORNWALL & SCILLY.

Cornwall Council should resist this TRASHY TORY TOFF TRICK with all their will and DEMAND powers that enable Cornwall Council to bring the EXISTING and ABUNDANT residential housing stock back into PROPER residential use.

What happens when the high ground around established and long bedded-in settlements is suffocated with concrete'ntarmac'nasphalt?
