Cornwall Council has made a bold planning decision to provide affordable homes for local people in Mevagissey

Controversial homes approved


Despite concerns from some quarters, Cornwall Council has agreed that planning permission for 31 homes on three acres of land at Mevagissey should be passed. The houses will be developed by Westcountry Land. They will be in keeping with the character of the village and will provide affordable homes for local people.

Mevagissey has become a magnet for tourism and for second home owners, resulting in people who live and work there struggling to find a home, says Westcountry Lands director John Schuttkacker. Yes, its been an emotional issue of developing the land, but in this case there is a dire need. The houses will range in price from 71,250 to 106,000 and work should start in the autumn.
