DEPUTY Prime Minister Nick Clegg has spoken often about the importance of the national house building program and its importance in getting the country’s economy back on track. On December 3, the Liberal Democrat leader visited a new housing development in Porthleven Cornwall, supporting his belief in the program.
As in the rest of Cornwall, Porthleven continues to battle with rising house prices, income disparity and lack of affordable homes for local people. The Coastline developed project is composed of affordable rent and shared ownership properties built on land above existing Coastline housing in Ocean Crescent. This build is part of a larger program supported by the Cornwall Council to deliver 200 new and affordable homes.
Mr. Clegg addressed the National Housing Building Council in November about building a strong economy in a fairer society. He asserted that “our communities will only sustain strong local economies if they can attract and house the employers, high-skilled workers and consumers they need."
Allister Young, Coastline’s CEO, said, “We always welcome a chance to show the spirit of Cornwall - and the community in Porthleven embodies this… At Coastline we’re delighted to be involved by ensuring local people can stay close to their work and families.”
