Help us spot the wasted spaces where you live
More housing is needed in Cornwall and we support the Government’s policy that brownfield land should be used for new homes.
However current planning policy doesn’t prioritise building new homes on brownfield land before building in the countryside. More needs to be done to use suitable sites in our towns and city rather than forcing development into our precious green spaces.
Send us your waste of space photos
To help us find out how much brownfield land is available and where it is, we are launching the #WasteOfSpace campaign to raise awareness of the ‘brownfield first’ solution.
Please help us by nominating brownfield sites in your area that could be suitable for housing development in the future.
You can add your nomination to the interactive map on the national CPRE website by:
- sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- tweeting @CPRE with the hashtag #WasteOfSpace
- posting to Facebook #WasteOfSpace
All we need from you is an image of the site (as simple as a quick snap on your smartphone) and an address of the site including the postcode and street address. Just send us this and we will do the rest.
The aim is to upload each nomination to the #WasteOfSpace map the same day it is submitted (or the next Monday if submitted at the weekend). So make sure you keep an eye out for your #WasteOfSpace nomination on the map so you can share it with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter once it is published.
