Having tenants and residents at the heart of everything we do is so important to us and that is why we have dedicated members who meet monthly as part of our Together with Ocean (TWO) group. In June, TWO were joined by Councillor Olly Monk, Portfolio holder for Planning and Housing, to discuss hot topics and answer their questions first hand.
Cllr Monk says, “Cornwall is facing an unprecedented housing crisis. We have to prioritise residents who are in the most housing need and must do all that we can to ensure that our most vulnerable residents have access to available homes at a rent they can afford. We also need to ensure this is done in a transparent and fair way. Attending meetings like this one with TWO, being able to hear first-hand their concerns for the future, this helps us to know what we can do to work towards making improvements in the future.”
Vice Chair of TWO, Maria said, “It was great to have Councillor Olly Monk in person at our meeting. He was open and honest about the current situation and able to inform us of how Cornwall Council are dealing with housing for those renting in the social and private sector.”
