Consultation on Cornwall Core Strategy

CONSULATION ON CORE STRATEGY

The consultation on Cornwall Council's Core Strategy lasts until 2nd March. MK is presently completing its official response, but you can also respond as an individual.

MK intends to argue the Council's claim that it will put “cultural distinctiveness at the heart of place shaping” is false, and the document abjectly fails to recognise what makes Cornwall culturally distinctive.

MK will also show the Strategy is not sustainable. The document is 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 simply mask Cornwall Council’s key purpose for the document, which is to promote unsustainable levels of housing growth and the development of, at least, 48,000 new properties.

Such levels of development would continue to foster a significant growth in the built-up area of Cornwall, as well as a truly unsustainable level of population growth.

MK will express our agreement with the Cornwall Social and Economic Research Group (CoSERG) that the proposed levels of growth in the Core Strategy would lead to “the loss of significant areas of countryside, the urbanisation of our towns and villages, much more traffic and congestion, and the irresponsible depletion of our natural resources.”

The Core Strategy documents can be viewed online at www.cornwall.gov.uk, where there is an online consultation system. Further information from CoSERG can be found at http://coserginfo.wordpress.com. Please take the time to have your say.
