Two organisations opposing mass house building across the county are to stage a demonstration outside Cornwall Council's offices next Thursday morning (Jan 31).

Trelawney Alliance and Our Cornwall have planned the demonstration to coincide with the strategic planning committee's discussion of the county's future housing needs.

Spokesman Jean Charman said: "Support us on the day by coming to Cornwall Council and confronting councillors as they come in by asking them to support the lowest number.

"We need to make it clear to them that this hyper-growth strategy will have irreversible consequences."

The demonstration is scheduled to start at 9am.

    When the gold rush to build is finally over leaving us with very few green fields of clover Those investors another killing will have made and farmers with no need for shovel or spade We will complain they have done it again this time the land before that the tin A roof over someone's head they may cry for others their Cornwall will just wither and die. yc The right balance and understanding is needed, decisions taken to day will undoubtedly affect our tomorrows.
