For your information . . .

A Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is a community-led framework for guiding the future development, regeneration and conservation of an area. It is about the use and development of land and contains our vision, objectives, planning policies, proposals for improving the area and/or providing new facilities and protecting the landscape. In 2015 Menheniot Parish Council began the process of creating a Neighbourhood Plan with a number of public consultations and surveys that were completed between 2015 and 2021. This plan relates to planning decisions made within Menheniot Parish.

The Evidence Base

From the middle of October 2019, we have been publishing a series of documents that form the Evidence Base for the Plan. 

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Localism Act 2011 introduced statutory Neighbourhood Planning in England. It enabled communities to draw up a plan for their area, to give them a greater say in the development and sustainability of their local area. A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding any future development, regeneration and conservation of an area. It may contain a vision, aims, planning policies, proposals for improving the area or providing new facilities, or allocation of key sites for specific kinds of development.

The Plan must be approved in a referendum of all those who are able to vote in Menheniot Parish. If it is approved, the Plan will be ‘Made’ in law and must be used by Cornwall Council when deciding on planning applications in the  Menheniot Parish area. Therefore replying to this survey gives you the opportunity to influence many of   the planning decisions that will affect you and your family’s future.
