“………31 Affordable New Homes…………
I wouldn’t expect to get much for the price range, better than nothing I suppose. Any thoughts on this one?

The company said the properties, which will be built on a three-acre site, will range in price from £71,250 to £106,000.

    "Cornwall Council has granted planning permission for the development of 31 affordable homes in the village." "Residential project for 31 dwellings, as a cross-subsidy scheme with 21 affordable homes and 10 open market homes." http://tinyurl.com/9wchabz The BBC and Westcountry Land seem to be at odds here?

    The problem is defining what 'affordable' is.

    According to this, £71,250 to £106,000 is affordable for these particular properties. Even if these properties are leasehold which most likely they will be, and most likely with other restrictions written into the covenant regarding to whom can buy the properties if you decide to sell at any time, the price may still seem to be very attractive, if they are not half buy half rent that is.

    Outrage' as Meva homes plan passed http://tinyurl.com/cgstnmb "This flies in the face of democracy. The planning officer omitted to say that 199 letters of objection had been received. We are outraged."

    Could be more to come by the looks of it. "Mr Cameron will tell business leaders this is so "people think twice about time-wasting" to delay developments." http://tinyurl.com/bqtsrwk
