Support affordable housing petition

I am very pleased to be able to give my full support to a petition which is calling on central government to take action to alleviate the housing crisis in Cornwall.

The campaign has been set up by Kate Tregunna who, in spite of doing important work at Treliske Hospital, is unable to gain access to housing that is affordable.

The petition calls for a range of actions to be taken. These include making sure that all new developments contain 50% affordable housing and introducing planning legislation to address the second homes issue.

I hope that you will also wish to support this campaign. Further information is available on and the petition can be found at

In the coming weeks, it is my intention to comment further on the housing crisis in Cornwall.
