NHS Kernow has already identified that the additional housing would have a significant impact on the services offered by GP practices in the area at Stratton and Neetside medical centres as the 21 dwellings could generate an extra 48.3 residents so they request mitigation of this by way of a planning obligation for additional primary care capacity.

Occupancy of the 21 homes will be limited to applicants who meet the eligibility criteria set out in the Local Lettings Plan. Eligible applicants will have a local connection to Cornwall, with priority given to those in the primary parish as detailed in the Local Letting Plan, then to those with a local connection to the secondary parish. If no occupants are allocated within the first 2 parishes, then the local connection will be to the County.
