Council cash offer to 'downsize'
Cornish housing association tenants could get up to 2,500 if they agree to move to a smaller home.

The Penwith District Council scheme is aimed at encouraging people to move out of properties which have become too large for their needs.

Anyone in a two, three or four-bedroom home is eligible to apply.

"This initiative is an important part in enabling families in temporary housing into permanent homes," said a council spokesman.
