Initial feedback from Cornwall Council and the NDP external independent examiner re Settlement Boundaries has included that:

  • Developments in gardens are Brownfield sites so under the NPPF, they can’t see how a Settlement Boundary will impact a possible planning application. Other normal considerations will have to be met.
  • St Agnes has had multiple small (below 10 properties ….) applications approved beyond it’s Settlement Boundary.
