Letter of support in the St Austell Voice

Many thanks to Julie Fox for her letter of support for MK’s work, and our continuing opposition to the so-called eco-community, which appeared in this week's St Austell Voice. If you haven’t seen it, her letter was as follows:

Once again, I am very disappointed at the recent coverage of the eco-community, proposed for land between Penwithick and St Austell. The article in last week’s newspaper seemed more like an advert for Eco-Bos than a balanced news report.

It is also a disgrace that Cornwall Council is ignoring one thousand objections to this development, and its spokesman is crowing that councillors voted to keep the eco-community in the Cornwall Local Plan.

I am a member of Mebyon Kernow, and I am proud that at least MK councillors have consistently opposed this development.

I wonder whether those other councillors, who are happy to back yet another 1,500 houses in Clay Country, would support such a large development in their own areas, for example, on the Roseland or on the outskirts of Looe.
