GREEN SPACES ASSESSMENT.  Do you have a favourite patch of green space in Menheniot? These can be recreational spaces with public access, public realm areas, portions of large residential areas that contribute to the setting of a place.  They can be small or large – public or private. If you think they should be protected from development, drop us a email before Monday 19 November 2018 describing where it is and what makes it special.




The Localism Act 2011 introduced statutory Neighbourhood Planning in England. It enabled communities to draw up a plan for their area, auto 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.
