- All focus groups should be represented at the consultation meetings

o Discussions over the overlap between the remit of BETI and the Housing group
within the NDP and whether they should be more closely linked in the future.
o The announcement from Government about very significant further increases in
new build housing targets for the UK including Cornwall predicted to be an additional 30% above the current target of ~52,000 for Cornwall. The increase could take the Cornwall target to nearly 70,000 new homes by 2030.
o The Community Land Trust was proposed as a possible funding source for local affordable homes in partnership with the Parish Council. This merits further investigation
