May 15th – June 26th 2019
We used all the information you gave us to find out what you care about and used this as the basis for detailed questionnaires and consultation. Planning consultants employed by the Parish Council have now outlined the policies of the plan for consultation which we believe will have community support.
But Cornwall Council need to check that you agree. Neighbourhood Development Plans are strengthened by public feedback, so it’s really important you have your say at this stage, and tell us if you think we have got it right or not. This is called Regulation 14, and is a 6 week formal consultation process. All feedback you give us will be reviewed, and will either be absorbed into the plan or an
explanation provided to justifying why it isn’t. This might change the plan, or it might be that not enough people agree with you to make changes. But it is important that as many of our community as possible, across all age groups engage tell us what they think. We will consult not only you, but everyone, including developers, businesses, and national organisations like the NHS.
In the next stage the plan and supporting documents are submitted to a Public Examiner, to checks the plan reflects your opinions and also complies with both the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), and the Cornwall Local Plan (CLP).
Sometimes an Examiner might ask for changes to be made, but if the examiner agrees it is a good plan, then by the end of the summer Cornwall Council will organise a community vote. If 50% +1 of those who vote approve it, the plan then becomes a legally binding document, and everyone will have to comply with its policies when making planning decisions about our Parish.
