The Case for Cornwall – who voted for this?

Cornwall Council got into the national news last week following the agreement reached with Central Government for the devolution of extra powers to Truro. I suspect this came as news to many people so we attach the document produced by Cornwall Council arguing their case. It makes interesting reading but given the current financial difficulties facing local government who would want to take more responsibilities from Whitehall.

To quote Mr McEnroe, “you cannot be serious”.

Read the parts on renewable energy. Unfortunately I think they are!

    So we have a Council that cannot even manage to run the toilets at local beaches appealing to the Government for more powers. What could possibly go wrong?

    In between the complete gobbledygook is a worrying message – not content with covering large parts of the county with ineffectual turbines and solar panels they actually want to install more. As for geothermal, it may work but what about those living nearby. Historically there were problems with vibration in people’s homes from the drilling. If you live near one of these sites and also near turbines, frankly you are stuffed.
