The local cost of austerity

Earlier today I joined over a hundred local people to send a strong message to Cornwall Council. Keep our community assets for our community.

The Council has planned to sell off land, and in particular the running track, at Carn Brea leisure centre in order to allow developers to build a supermarket. Some of the proceeds of sale might be used to patch up the leisure centre but a lot would be lost into the general coffers of the council rather than be used for the benfit of the local community.

Mebyon Kernow believes that real localism is about protecting this sort of local community facility. Where is the olympic legacy for Pool?

This sort of stupidity is the true face of failed Westminster austerity. Our community facilities are being sold off while bankers continue to get their bonusses.
