There is nowhere in Kernow that there is not deep mine shafts. Is someone going to pay to have the whole of Kernow tested for deep mine shafts in every area of our country. Who is going to pay the huge compensation that will have to be paid to the people who will actually, buy or live in these plastic properties?? When they have to be demolished?

My parish has spent over 5 years consulting everybody and making a robust NP based on what locals want combined with national guidelines. NPs were meant to be the driving force for considerate house building (amidst other policies). Where to now? More years of consultation or are we – the residents of Cornwall – going to be swept aside?
