During the last three quarters of 2017 and 2018, figures from the council show that there are 1,692 affordable houses that are provided in Cornwall. Then, another 474 affordable houses were delivered during the first two quarters of 2018 and 2019 with an additional target of 245 houses during the third quarter.

When it comes to budget housing, the Cornwall Council is believed to be at the top of the crowd.

When it comes to distributing affordable homes, the council is said to be the country’s best local authority performer.

The news about the achievement was announced by Jon Lloyd-Owen, the housing’s council strategic director, during a meeting of the council’s development overview and economic growth.

However, the announcement was interrupted by the Cornwall Council’s housing cabinet member Andrew Mitchell, in which he thought that the council was waiting for the confirmation and he was obviously surprised.

The council released a figure that there were 1,692 affordable houses that Cornwall has provided in the last three quarters of 2017 and 2018.

Cllr Mitchell has said that they believe they will be positioned at number one, but they just want to confirm if it is true.

They were also slightly surprised about their own figures and thought that they will be positioned at number two.

He also said that it is wonderful news whether they are second or first. They have helped in providing affordable houses for the Cornish families who need it.

He also added that there is an ongoing debate about what houses are affordable and that is something that they are figuring out as a council to make sure that they can help people who need homes.

He also said that the good news is they are doing what they have to do as a council in bringing low-cost homes and he thinks that it is fantastic.

The ranking is based on the number of houses delivered by the local authority and not by area or population levels.
