We have worked over the last three months to understand the local need on the Peninsula, identify some possible sites for housing and get into contact with the main players – Cornwall Council, funders, housing groups and so on. All the work is described in our new Community Housing report, which you can read here.
We have had really good support from the community and from all five Parish Councils. Cllr George Trubody has worked hard on our behalf and arranged meetings with the senior county leaders: the Cornwall Council portfolio holder for Housing, Cllr Andrew Mitchell and the chief officer, Jon Lloyd-Owen.
We are in regular contact with the council's Affordable Housing Team and have meetings planned to work on The Old Ship and the Coastguard Cottages opportunity - these are three empty council properties in Cawsand that we may be able to reopen for local housing.
