Responding to Cornwall's Housing Crisis

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Cornwall is experiencing a housing crisis.

Over the last year, the cost of buying or renting a decent home has risen faster than wages, leaving many households priced out of the market. Cornwall also experiences competition because of its popularity as a holiday destination which also impacts on the availability and affordability of existing homes. Despite progress in recent years, there are not enough affordable homes to meet local people’s needs. These problems are worse because of the pandemic.

In response to this, we are developing a Housing Crisis Plan to set out a series of actions to be taken by the Council, housing partners and working with communities and residents. The aim of the plan is:

That Cornwall’s housing market and provision enables residents to secure a home they can afford.

To help us shape this Plan and the actions, we would like to ask you 7 questions. You can provide your responses until midnight on Friday 29th October by using the survey link below.
