Derek Thomas made a powerful speech in the House of Commons today in support of the government’s reforms of the planning system. The housing crisis in Cornwall can only be resolved by building houses - and we now have the opportunity to build them in a sustainable way.
To build back better is not a simple catchy headline. The Government is right to set this ambitious agenda ensuring that our country’s footing is built on opportunities for all and robust measures to secure a positive future wherever people live.
There are many aspects of the job of Member of Parliament for West Cornwall and Scilly that are rewarding and worthwhile but not much tops the opportunity to meet constituents at the drop-in events, the latest of which I hosted in various pubs last week.
