Why does the County Council continue to allow people to buy good family sized affordable housing stock and then demolish them to build 5/6 bedroom identikit houses and then allow 2 people to live in them?
 
Surely occupance should at some stage become part of the planning process, because it isn't at the moment by the looks of some parts of the village.
 
It's more profitable for the council that way, bigger house equals more revenue, doesn't matter how many people live in it. In fact bigger houses fewer people is even better, much more revenue far less cost.

2 people living in a top band house is worth more to BCC than 5 living in a mid band.
as said.

I agree with the artical, local connection is key, it would be nice to think that my son (6) could stay and raise his family in the village without having to win the lottery! 
I don't think that we should tar everyone with the same brush though.

Great debate topic by the way! very contraversial!
 
 
 
 
Whilst it would be nice to think that this is what the houses would be used for, young professionals etc. being able to afford quality low cost housing in CSP. I think it would be stupid to not assume that like most places the houses would be filled with scummers, immigrants and other non-desirables.
CSP Gossip King!

Old Chris your 100% correct hence them allowing so many demolitions in the Heights and 5/6 room corporate houses going up and only 2 people living in them...
