  11. Plans for new Bodmin homes go on display for consultation

    BBC Radio Cornwall

    Plans to build 175 homes on the site of the former St Lawrence's Hospital have gone on display in Bodmin for public consultation.

    It's one of two sites earmarked for Cornwall Council's Contemporary Cornish Living scheme - the other is in Tolvaddon.

    Forty of the houses will be affordable and there will be a mix of homes to buy or let.

    However, there are concerns not enough thought has gone into the services needed to support the new homes - like doctors surgeries and schools.

    Mayor Jeremy Cooper concedes the houses are needed but doesn't feel people are being truly consulted.

    Quote Message: I wish there was a more joined up approach when talking to the community and finding out the needs, requirements and aspirations of the community before it goes to paper. Is it really a consultation if you can't really change the shape of the proposal? from Jeremy Cooper Mayor, Bodmin Town Council

    Cornwall Council said it is committed to "delivering developments that reflect the needs of the local community".

    It added the county needs more good quality homes and schemes such as the one in Bodmin sees the council "directly invest in and build attractive, high quality homes that people can afford in areas of high demand".
