The Perranzabuloe NDP is now (early 2024) being reviewed by an external Examiner.
Following the end on December 12th 2023 of the formal (Regulation 16) consultation undertaken by Cornwall Council, the submitted Perranzabuloe NDP, associated documentation, and responses made during the consultation are currently being reviewed by an Independent External Examiner. The consultation responses themselves can be viewed by using the reference PA23/00026/NDP on Cornwall Council’s planning application website.
The Steering Group don’t know the time scale for the Examiner. We hope that things progress for a referendum on or around Easter.
Relevant information will be published here as soon as it becomes available. In the mean time, all of the documents to date are on our, documents page.
Future stages of the NDP are likely to be:
- Amendment of the plan to accommodate the views of the Examiner
- Holding a referendum of residents in the parish on the adoption of the plan
- The final ‘making’ of the plan by Cornwall Council.
What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan?
According to the gov.uk Website, a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) “gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead.”
It’s a consultative process to find out what our community wants and express this in a way to help our parish evolve as the community wants it to. Yes we have to fit in with national and local legislation but a NDP can and will impact the future of our area.
We believe that everybody should have their say and a chance to help this process – your voice, your choice.
We have a 14 member Steering Group and working groups for:
- Environment & Heritage
- Business, Employment, Transport and Infrastructure (BETI)
