New Homes Should Be For Local People
We were discussing a draft housing strategy for the District.
My real concern is that we won’t see enough affordable homes for local people to buy.
I pointed to initiatives in other parts of the country, such as Cornwall, where Council policy has meant some homes can only be purchased by people with local family connections.
I think it is such a shame when children, flying the nest, are forced to settle miles away out of the area because they cannot afford to buy locally.
Do you agree?

At a recent meeting of residents in Eling, I was told about the hazard of cyclists coming down the hill and failing to stop or even slow down as they reach the pavement along Eling Lane.
