South Hill Housing Needs Survey | Let’s Talk Cornwall

Here are other parishes survey results > Housing needs surveys and reports – Cornwall Council

FROM OUR PARISH COUNCIL: HOUSING NEEDS SURVEY: It’s never been easy to buy or rent a home in Cornwall where prices are higher than average but wages are below average.  The number of homes for rent has gone down in recent years because of the number of houses sold for second homes or for holiday rental. Thankfully in this parish, that has had minimal effect but it is still very hard for anyone who grows up locally to get a job which pays well enough to afford a home here.

Urban Terrace Homes, Callington

Work on Cornwall Council’s scheme to build 15 new affordable homes for local people in Callington is underway, with the first residents expected to move into their new homes in late 2023.

The new homes, which are being built at Urban Terrace, replace 10 council-owned and 5 privately owned homes built in the 1959’s. The properties had to be demolished following identification of Mundic, which was gradually making them structurally unsound.

The new scheme will provide 4 one-bedroom flats, 7 two-bedroom houses and 4 three-bedroom houses with gardens and parking. All the homes will be highly insulated and heated with low carbon air source heat pumps.

As well as providing the 15 new homes, the scheme will also include landscaping and tree planting, with bee bricks and bird boxes being used as part of the landscaping process to increase biodiversity.
