What will your neighbourhood look like in 20 years’ time?
Since 2012, local communities have been able to produce Neighbourhood Plans for their local area, putting in place planning policies for the future development and growth of the Neighbourhood. Following initial public consultation meetings in 2014, St Clement Parish Council has decided to work with local residents to write a Neighbourhood Plan covering the whole of the parish. Neighbourhood Plans relate to the use and development of land and associated social, economic and environmental issues. Depending on what you the residents tell us, it may deal with a wide range of issues, such as housing, employment, heritage and transport, or it may focus on just one or two issues of particular local importance.
If you live in or around St Clement, Malpas, Tresillian or Buckshead, this is your chance to help create the planning policies that will affect what is built in the Parish (and where) in the years to come. Join the conversation and help us shape the future of St Clement Parish.
January 2020 Update
The draft Neighbourhood Development Plan was approved by Cornwall Council and has been subject to Independent Examination by a Planning Inspector. A final version has now been recommended to Cornwall Council for referendum. A final version is available on the download page. We will publicise the date of the Referendum when we so are advised – the NDP only becomes part of the planning policy when a majority of voters in the referendum vote for it.
Comment from Emma Ball, Neighbourhood Planning Officer:
I have changed the date on the front cover to January 2020 which is attached. I have checked the amended NDP and sent it for sign off with a report. I will let you know when it is signed off and when a date is set for the Referendum. You should all be very pleased with what the steering group have achieved. All the hard work is done.
