Reports from Focus Groups

Housing (Roger Kayes)

Roger Kayes apologized that he has not yet produced the discussion document prior to holding the Housing Focus Group’s first meeting. It is his intention to prepare a document outlining the possibilities in the housing area, as a basis for consulting with the community over what it wishes to see happen. Such opportunities are strongly constrained by rather complex planning regulations and practices – e.g. as seen at work in planning committee decision-making. The plan is to get the document out, by March 17th, for consultation with people more knowledgeable than him, and following that will arrange a meeting with people who have expressed an interest in this area.

There was some discussion about the government changes announced on Monday, 5th March, particularly the government’s approach to increasing housing supply through planning. The meeting discussed the draught revision to the NPPF (National Planning Policy Framework) and associated guidance, and possible implications for the NP. One issue discussed concerned the possibility that in the future it may be important to update the NDP, or parts of it to keep it current, given proposals in the draft revised NPPF.

RK reminded the meeting of the potential for the parish attracting considerable funds in the future from CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) payments, with the parish eligible for 25% of all such payments that arise within the parish, once it has an approved NDP. It was pointed out that the key role of the neighbourhood plan could be to get the parish’s perspective on which projects it would like these funds to be spent on in the future. If the rates proposed by Cornwall Council for this area do pass unaltered into the CIL framework to be adopted in the autumn of 2018, then for a standard-sized, 100m2 new house, the parish could expect £2,500 funds to be forthcoming.

RK also reported that he is exploring with Cornwall Council the possibility for including a policy in the NP against developing additional major sites in the parish. If this is not a prospect, given the frequent advice that a NDP can’t stop development, then there is little point in raising this as a possibility in our consultation material. He reported the suggestion from a planning consultant that this might be possible if there were good evidence that this would cause ‘harm’ to the community, such as in terms of foul drainage and school places. These was discussion as to whether such issues might best be addressed through phasing provisions in any plan.

BETI (Business, Employment Transport & Infrastructure) (Kevin Havill)

The principal activity reported was the meeting with Highways England on the 8th February when they held a public consultation day event at Perranporth Memorial Hall concerning the proposed new section of the A30 to be constructed between Carland Cross and Chiverton Cross.

Philip Moore and Kevin Havill represented the BETI group and meet with the Highways England project managers and retained consultants Arup.

The existing section of the A30 between these points is planned to be ‘de–trunked’. There is provision in the project for off site works and Section106 payments to Cornwall Council for specific projects. Highways England want these projects defined very soon as their consultation period ends 12th March.

Rerouting traffic around Goonhavern and creating a cycle track from Perranporth towards Newquay were two specific items discussed in principal. It was agreed that both could potentially be projects able to benefit from the funds to be allocated.

It was agreed that further discussion should include Cornwall Council as they are Highways England’s counter party.

Guy Thomas has arranged an extraordinary Community Network Panel meeting at Perranporth Parish Council offices 18:30 to 20:30, 8th March at which Highways England will present to the Parish Council and take a Q & A session. The BETI group has been invited to attend and this replaces the previously planned meeting.

Environment & Heritage (Chris Ashby-Zwozdiak)

No formal meetings have been held since the last meeting due to adverse weather causing cancellation.

CAZ .is planning to carry out surveys for the Local Landscape Character Assessment simultaneously with the Local Village Characteristic Assessment.

CAZ requested authority to purchase the Wildlife Resource Map from ORKS (price £80 plus VAT) Proposed by RJ, seconded WR carried unanimously.

Financial Issues

A £500 grant has been awarded to the NDP by the Perranporth Garden Charities.

The Co-operative Community Group funding scheme is requesting that organisations may apply for the next tranche of funding due to start from 28th October 2018. Applications need to be made before 22nd April. 2018. WNR will progress this.

Application for Community Grants can only be made when actual future expenditure has been identified. The grant should be spent within 6 months of award. A total of £9,000 is available over the length of the project. It is suggested that some £3,000-£4,000 should aim to be applied for in April 2018.

Any Other Business

It was noted that meetings were recorded to assist in the formation of the minutes. It was proposed by RK, seconded by RJ that the recordings should be deleted after the acceptance of the minutes. This was carried unanimously.

WR should aim to produce a project plan for discussion at the next meeting of the SG

All meetings of SGs and FGs should be posted upon Facebook. (NJ/RJ to action as necessary).

A system for storage of information will be set up. The possibility of incorporating the facilities of the Perranporth Library is to be investigated.

Date of Next Meeting and Closure

The next SG meetings have been scheduled for Monday 23rd April & Tuesday 22nd May. Both will take place at the Parish offices.

The meeting closed at 21h15.

2018-02-08 Steering Group Meeting Minutes

Perranzabuloe Neighbourhood Development Plan
Steering Group Meeting – 8th February 2018

Minutes

1   Address by Kathryn Statham

Prior to the start of the meeting, Kath Statham (Landscape Planning Officer -Cornwall Council) gave a presentation upon ‘Local Landscape Character Assessment and Neighbourhood Planning’. A copy of the slides is attached to these minutes. Kath is prepared to offer help and training (at a cost) from the CC to enable this to be addressed in the Neighbourhood Plan. She also provided high definition large scale maps of the area. The presentation was very well received.

Post the meeting Kathryn sent us:

2          Attendance and Apologies

The Chairman, Rory Jenkins welcomed everybody to the meeting. The list of attendees is appended to these minutes.

Apologies were received from Alison Wright. New observers were Marijka Zwozdiak and Tanya Mock.

3          Approval of Minutes of Meeting dated 9th January 2018

Proposed by Rory Jenkins, seconded by Chris Ashby-Zwozdiak and carried unanimously by the meeting.

4          Matters arising from meeting dated 9th January 2018

William Rogers reported that in order to apply for grants from CC it will be necessary to progress the Neighbourhood Plan to a position that we can assess costs of assets and activities fairly accurately.

WR submitted a request to the Gardens Charities to consider providing a grant in their January 2018 allocation.

Due to the departure of Jenny Bowden, it has been necessary to appoint a new Vice Chairman. Kevin Havill offered himself for this position. There were no other nominations, or objection to Kevin. Hence he was appointed by the Steering Group.

Nick Joy’s temporary position of Communications Officer was endorsed unanimously to become a permanent position.

4a       New Issue – Report on Meeting between RJ, WR and Guy Thomas of CC

Given the progress that Cornwall Council has accepted that Perranzabuloe has ‘Designated Area Status’ for a NDP, that we should have a Steering Group and Focus Groups, it seemed appropriate to have an update with Guy Thomas. He will be one of our primary contacts in Cornwall Council for the duration of the project.

Rory (NDP Chairperson) and William (NDP Secretary) met Guy at the Cornwall Council offices in Truro.

 

Prior to the meeting, Rory wrote up the following notes that were pre-circulated by Willaim. A quick summary of these were given at the meeting.

From having been involved with many NDP’s around Cornwall Guy had the following advice:

1. Spread the load. If the project is taken on by too small a group, it can lead to it stalling or collapsing.

2. St Agnes have stood out for their level of on-going information to their community. Their almost monthly updates to the community is yielding dividends with them typically getting around 20% respondent rates to their consultations. This is apparently high.

3. Don’t attempt community consultation in the holidays. Spring and Autumn work well.

4. Always keep evidence of all engagement and responses.. Without the final NDP being backed by evidence of being the wishes of the community it won’t get accepted by CC

5. If we feel we might need external experts, ask Guy and his team first. They might have the skills we need, for free or cheaper than elsewhere. Or they might know where to get the best skills at the best price.

6. Imogen Day in his team is their expert on policy. So not only can she help with what we can and can’t influence, she will also be there to help write up the NDP so that it fits with existing planning policy.

Progressing this, Guy suggested the following 2018 time scale.

Feb / March
Engage with the community to say that work has started on a NDP. Explain what this is. Say we want everybody’s views, input, help etc.  Give contact details. (Website, Facebook, email list, notice boards). Say that from the initial group and meetings, which we hope will grow as more learn about it, It was suggested by RJ that we should identify items that cause the most concern for the Parish, and home in particularly on the top 5 subjects to examine in depth.

the initial TOP 5 issues are ……   .Ask what they think about these. Ask if what issues, if any, they would put instead of any of these issues. Have it so that responses are delivered to drop off points at local shops, pubs etc.

Late April / May
Have the first community engagement meetings. Having these where the community normally meet apparently works well. eg a local pub.
This would involve the first questionnaire to establish top concerns.

June
Attend events throughout the Parish

July & August
Consolidate and analyse the responses.

September
Use the analysed responses to start a second round of questions and engagement.

In relation to the overall plan and next stages, Guy in particular mentioned the  Consultation and Engagement Toolkit and the Project Plan links which are to a PDF and an Excel template: These can be accessed though the following hyperlinks.:-
Project Planning
Project Plan Template (which WR has already started looking at)

 

All events Should be recorded and logged, together with the extent of representation from the public.

5          Reports from Focus Groups

     Housing (Roger Kayes)

Roger Kayes started off by saying that he felt that the Housing Focus Group was adopting a different approach to that of the other focus groups – in particular, because of the constraints and opportunities generated by the planning context within which any neighbourhood plan proposals will have to be developed.

Having held a few meetings with himself (given that he is currently the only member of this Focus Group), he reported that he is preparing half a dozen briefing notes on key dimensions of this planning ‘framework’. It is intended that these briefing notes should help the Steering Group decide the key choices open to the NP process; these being the choices which could be presented to the wider community in the forthcoming consultation.

An example of this is regarding the allocation of new housing sites. The current situation is that the Cornwall Local Plan, itself adopted in November 2016, contains an allocation of 1100 houses for the local ‘Community Network Area’, an area which spans 8 parishes running from St Agnes up to Crantock. According to Cornwall Council’s monitoring, enough houses had been developed or given planning permission from the beginning of the plan period in 2010 to April 2017, to fulfil the target of dwellings to be built before the end of the period, 2030. So our NP does not have to allocate further large sites.

He briefly presented some points around CC’s policy of rural Exception Sites which are required to provide at least 50% of the capacity as ‘affordable housing’, as well as the topic of the Community Infrastructure Levy which has implications for any proposal to include a ‘Permanent Residence Condition’ for new housing developments in the parish.

Karen Collam offered to help with the work of this focus group (and immediately after the end of the meeting, Susan Dutson also volunteered to help).

 

            BETI (Business, Employment Transport & Infrastructure) (Kevin Havill)

The group has met twice since the previous Steering Group Meeting. The BETI focus group consists of seven members plus two parish councillors as participating observers. The group has a broad knowledge base and managed to reach a positive and broad consensus on the points discussed to date.

At the first meeting the group extensively explored the scope of what should be considered under the headings of Business, Employment, Transport and Infrastructure.

Together with these we also considered various potential sources of information and contact groups to support building the evidential base, and to whom we can inform of the Perranzabuloe Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) process with the view of gaining participation and feedback.

At the second meeting they followed Council for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE) recommendations to agree a vision statement that was felt to be applicable to BETI areas of interest and which they hoped would be in line with the ambitions of the other groups. The group then specified a reasonably comprehensive number of hard and soft objectives which can be taken to the community as the starting point for discussion and debate.

Meeting Notes were made and circulated. These recorded those present and issues discussed.

The agreed Vision Statement was:

To create an environment for a healthy, vibrant and thriving local economy serving the needs of all year round residents and visitors alike.  Perranzabuloe will seek to attract and retain people and their families who can live, work and enjoy active leisure time in the locality.

Businesses including those within new technologies sectors would be attracted to establish and enlarge due to the provision of new infrastructure, a local labour pool and suitable premises.

            Environment & Heritage (Chris Ashby-Zwozdiak)

Several areas of expertise were identified and all agreed that this is a huge remit. Energy is to be focused into Local Landscape Character Assessment LLCA areas and plans.   The group is awaiting the next steering group meeting to provide clarity on zoning.

The group discussed the NDPs from Newquay, Falmouth, St Ives, Bude, and Crantock. They have looked with particular focus on St Agnes as the sister parish. Of particular interest was the St Agnes Parish Open Space Strategy which has been analysed by CC using the same methodology/criteria as Cornwall Council’s own Open Space Strategy. It was suggested that it would be in the Council’s interest if this NDP completed the Open Space Strategy (OSS) for the whole Parish as they intend eventually to roll it out across the entire Duchy. It was queried as to whether it would be necessary to add further areas though retrospectively. It seemed rather thin on farmland, and hedge/scrubland. Newquay NDP also includes ‘valued landscapes’ and protection of views and vistas.

It was proposed that an Online Recording Kernow & Scilly (ORKS), via the Environmental Records Centre for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (ERCCIS) study be conducted for the area. Details of CC’s Environmental Growth Strategy together with the associated Biodiversity were discussed. The Biodiversity Targets document which accompanies will also need to be embedded. Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s ‘wildlife resource map for neighbourhood planning was also examined.

Lizzi Larbalestier and her team on Perranporth’s Plastic Free Coastline Status were congratulated. It was agreed that there are many volunteers involved who may also wish to join the group with this, not to mention expertise associated with knowledge of Sites of Special Scientific Interest/ Areas Outstanding Natural Beauty SSSI/AONB’s, dune management re: planning, flora and fauna etc..

Assistance from Natural England and Historic England was noted and welcomed. The CC Interactive Map/Magic was discussed

The extent of conservation areas within the parish, (perhaps Callestick or Bolingey), need to be investigated further.

It was mentioned that reference to, and investigation of, the Town and Country Planning Act is required in addition to other planning documents. This is in order to maintain conformity and to shape general policies without getting bogged down in detail over area specifics. The AONB Management Plan also applies to far west of the Parish.

Skate Park (Bolenna) difficulties were discussed as part of CC Public Open Space observations. The key observations of the existing provision were that there were low levels (per person) of types 4 (children’s equipped play) and 5 (youth) provision, However to some degree these would be compensated by the considerable beach assets. The level of types 1 (park/amenity) and 2 (natural open space) are higher in Perranporth than in most other towns, BUT the Insight report states that green space and access is low for Perranporth. Further investigation is needed, hence also the requirement for a more comprehensive Parish wide survey in conjunction with wildlife/ORKS mapping/LLCA’s.

The group concluded with a look at language for a possible mission statement for this group or as a whole.

No further meeting date was set, as the FG will meet at next steering group when a clearer picture of evolving LLCA will emerge, and the volunteers to train for the process are identified.

2018 01 09 Meeting Minutes

A PDF copy of the 2018 01 09 minutes are here.

Attendance

The Chairman, Rory Jenkins welcomed everybody to the meeting. The list of attendees is appended to these minutes.

Apologies were received from Janine Branch, Peter Gaisford, Susan Griffiths & Karen Tregay.

A particular welcome was extended to Jaquie Byatt, whom as well as being a resident of Perranzabuloe, is also a Planning Officer within CC.  She is prepared to become a member of a Focus Group.

It was agreed that the meeting be recorded for the purposes of writing the Minutes only.

Resignations from the Steering Group were received from Robert Norrington (Communication lead) who wishes to concentrate upon the communication needs of the Parish Council, and Jenny Barton (Vice Chairman) who does not consider that presently she has sufficient time to take on the role.  It was agreed that these roles be opened to the whole of the Steering Group to apply for.  Mindful of this Rory and Nick will produce an initial job specification for the role, with the goal of electing new officers at the next SG meeting.  Nick Joy has agreed to continue as Acting Head of Communications for the meantime, until the formal appointment is made.

Approval of Minutes of Meeting dated 30th November,2017

Proposed by Andrew Bone, seconded by Chris Ashby-Zwozdiak and carried by the majority of the meeting.

Matters arising from meeting dated 30th November, 2017

Cornwall Council has accepted that Perranzabuloe has ‘Designated Area Status’ for the purpose of writing the Neighbourhood Plan. The defined area is the whole of the parish within the designated boundaries.

William Rogers will investigate sources of grant funding from CC, how to apply , and report at the next meeting.

Steering Group Terms of Reference

Roger Kayes re- tabled draft ‘Terms of References ‘  for discussion.  These have been revised to take account of the clarifications and additions requested at the Committee meeting on 30th November, namely:

  • Clarification of the role of the Parish Council in the process of plan preparation (Section 5).
  • Insertion of a sentence about voting out office holders (Section 6).
  • Adding two points about handling minor expenses and pre-agreed expenditure of less than £50 paid by petty cash (Section 8).
  • Minor changes to Dissolution procedures (Section 10).

The Revised Terms of Reference were sent out to all Steering Group members with the Minutes of Meeting of 30th November. Their adoption was agreed unanimously.

Communications Update accepted by the meeting.

Nick Joy gave a short PowerPoint presentation, showing his perspective of how the Communication Policy might progress.  His key points were:

  • The Consultation Statement should provide evidence that we engaged with the community
  • It is necessary to follow along the guidelines set out in CC documents.
  • It is necessary to consult with other Parishes that have completed their plan.
  • It is essential to plan well first to ensure all parishioners are included and nothing is missed.

The presentation is attached  to these minutes.  The communication is a paramount part of the Neighbourhood Plan, and supports all other activities.  RJ reiterated the importance of the openness of the process from the setting of meeting agendas to the actual comprehensive involvement of the parish with surveys, public displays and the final referendum on the acceptance of the final plan. Meetings should not be confined to the Parish rooms, but be held in other venues within the Parish.

The resignation of Robert from the Steering Group means that we cannot continue to refine  or use the Logo presented by him.

A simplified Logo  (shown overleaf) to promote the Neighbourhood Plan was presented and agreed by the meeting to be adopted. It was based on the ideas of, (in order of declining scale):

  • That we live in a coastal parish (blue sea)
  • That a neighbourhood development planning is about boundaries and zones
  • That at a personal level, most of us live in a building that gives us shelter from the natural elements.

Cornwall Council have produced a set of guidelines and comprehensive templates that should be followed throughout the process.  The Neighbourhood Plan must show that the extent of consultation is sufficiently comprehensive to represent the views of the whole of the parish. NJ outlined some of the main issues within the guidelines.

NJ outlined the extent, complexity and detailed nature of the Communication tasks.

SWOT Analysis

Kevin Havill presented a SWOT  (Strengths Weaknesses, Threats & Opportunities) analysis for Perranzabuloe.  This was enthusiastically discussed with various suggestions for additional items to be included. This forms appendix 1 to the minutes.

Formation of Focus Groups

RJ reminded the meeting that the Focus Groups set up by St Agnes parish were:

  • Housing
  • Environment
  • Communication
  • BETI (Business, Employment, Transport & Infrastructure)

It was agreed that we should follow the same structure with minor amendments.. Hence the initial groups to be adopted by Perranzabuloe would be-

  • Housing
  • Environment & Heritage
  • BETI

The Communication team would work in conjunction with the three FGs and as such, was not included in the list of Focus Groups.

The membership of the initial Focus Groups was agreed to be as follows, with a member of the SG taking the lead, and being responsible for reporting back to future SG meetings.  It was agreed that the coverage of individual FGs  and their changes is likely to evolve as the process proceeds.

Housing

Roger Kayes & Jacquie Byatt

Environment & Heritage

Chris Ashby-Zwozdiak (leader), Alison Wright, Susan Dutson, Angela Maynard, Jack Clark, Simon Jeffery, Lizzi  Larbalester

BETI

Kevin Havill (leader), Andrew Bown, Karen Colam, Michael Callan, Phil More, Jacquie Byatt,  Simon Jeffery.

The Focus Groups should aim to report back at the next SG meeting,

WR will clarify whether members of the PC (Michael Callan & Karen Colam) can join Focus Groups.  Michael Callan will have an ex-officio role, being both a Parish and County Councillor.

Financial Issues

Andrew Bown has agreed to continue to assist the SG with financial matters.

The cost of the production of the NP was raised. WR reported that based upon the experience of St Agnes, the whole Plan could be produced  for between £20-£30,000.  This allows for publications as part of Communications,  a small amount of professional  help, as well as a reasonable allocation of unforeseen extras.  Now that Perranzabuloe has received designated status from CC, we can apply for a grant from  ‘Locality’ .  This is a source of funding for NDP preparation, set up by Central Government.  Also, money may be available from the National Lottery as well as the Cornwall Community Foundation.  WR will report at the next meeting.

Any Other Business

Roger Kayes will provide a suggested reading list for SG members of completed, or largely complete NPs, together with a few Examiner’s reports, so that we can learn from the experience of others.  The list forms Appendix 4, and is also available on ‘Perranplan.org’

Kevin Havill has requested that the SG purchases a white board for use at meetings.  MC commented that the PC owns at least one that can be used.

Date of Next Meeting and Closure

The next SG meetings have been scheduled for Thursday 8th February, and Wednesday 7th March.  Both will take place at the Parish offices.

The meeting closed at 21h00.

Appendix 4 Suggestion of NPs and Examiner’s Reports to look at

An initial pointer….   Roger Kayes, 18 January 2018

Cornwall Council’s website gives updated information on the progress of Cornish parishes in preparing NPs:

https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/planning/neighbourhood-planning/neighbourhood-planning-in-cornwall/#-tab-357841

According to this site, there are 214 parish and town councils in Cornwall; 118 are currently engaged in preparing NPs, a figure which includes the 11 that have completed the process and whose plans are now ‘made’ (that is, adopted as part of Cornwall’s ‘Development Plan’).

1          Bude-Stratton NP and Examiner’s Report

The final NP dated February 2016 (although it includes amendments following the Examination held in December 2016):

http://www.budestrattonnp.org/beta/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Bude-Stratton-Neighbourhood-Plan-with-post-examination-amendments.pdf

The Examiner’s Report is available from:

http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/media/25207270/bude-stratton-ndp-appendix-1-final-report-bude-examination-report_p1.pdf

You can get a sense of part of the CC process by looking at the material that went to a Committee in 2016 via:

2          Roche NP and Examiner’s Report

This CC page links to the Roche documents – the NP was ‘made’ in the summer of 2017:

3          St Ives NP and Examiner’s Report

These are lengthy documents but the NP is pretty detailed and the discussion of the Primary Residence condition interesting, particularly if we want to consider this here in Perrranzabuloe:

https://stivesnplan.wordpress.com/

4          Feock NP

Feock is a much smaller and more rural parish that Perranzabuloe, but has been recommended by Jinny Clarke of St Agnes.  It has interesting detail in terms of planning policies, and I understand the NP process has benefited from the significant number of professional people with relevant experience living in the area.  They have produced a separate ‘Delivery Strategy’ and Consultation Document, both of which are well worth looking at.  Note the coverage of issues in the Delivery Strategy.

https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/planning/neighbourhood-planning/neighbourhood-planning-in-cornwall/tab-placeholder/a-i/feock-neighbourhood-development-plan/

At the time of writing, the dedicated website at http://www.feockparishcouncil.co.uk/neighbourhood-plan has technical problems and is inaccessible.

5          Crantock NP

This NP went out to ‘Statutory Consultation’ in November 2017 (the 6-week period finishing in January 2018).  The plan is the ‘Proposal Document’, part way down the page.  It is particularly included here since this is a neighbouring NP.  (I haven’t looked at it in detail.)

Creating a Steering Group & starting the

Perranzabuloe Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)

Attendance

The Chairman, Rory Jenkins welcomed everybody to the meeting. He
repeated that this meeting was essentially for the Steering Group. However, it was open for all residents to attend and there would be opportunities for public participation.

It was agreed that all meetings should aim to close by 9pm.

A list of attendees is annexed to these minutes.

Apologies were received from Tony Reynolds and Kate Walsh.

Tony Reynolds has resigned from the Steering Group due to work pressure.

Approval of Minutes of Meeting dated 2nd November 2017

Proposed by Rory Jenkins, seconded by Jenny Barton and carried unanimously.

Matters arising from meeting dated 2nd November 2017

Will Rogers has submitted the application to Cornwall Council for ‘Designated Area Status’.

Steering Group Terms of Reference

Roger Kayes tabled draft ‘Terms of Reference’ for discussion. These were based upon Cornwall Council‘s ‘Steering Group Sample Terms of
Reference’. Main additional items added or altered by RK for the Perranzabuloe NP were:

  • Clarification of the role of the Parish Council in the process of plan
    preparation (Section 5)
  • Insertion of a sentence about voting out Office holders (Section 6)
  • Adding two points about handling minor expenses and pre-agreed
    expenditure of less than £50 paid by petty cash (Section 8)
  • Minor changes to Dissolution procedures (Section 10).

In the light of comments made by the Steering Group, Roger will amend the terms and a corrected version will be prepared for discussion at the next Steering Group meeting

Steering Group Tasks and Opportunities

Roger Kayes presented a set of slides, showing his perspective of what might be achieved in a PNP, in decreasing priority:

  1. The most important: Issues of planning policy that can influence
    decision making and subsequently become part of the ‘Development Plan’.
  2. Influence the allocation of Sn 106 monies, and CIL funds from 2019,
    once the NP is adopted by CC.
  3. Specific projects that could be progressed through the NP process,
    but which could not be implemented through adoption by CC.

The fourth category presented his perspective of what cannot be achieved through the NP, such as influencing the provision of an additional  school or surgery places.

Rory Jenkins summarised his understanding that Examiners in their Reports on submitted NPs tend to divide their content into two sections, namely those that the NP can possibly influence directly, and those on which it can have an indirect influence (e.g. service availability, schools and medical facilities).

Jinny Clark (St Agnes NP) reported that the Focus Groups that they adopted in their parish were:

  • Housing
  • Environment
  • Communication
  • BETI (Business, Employment, Transport & Infrastructure)

It was agreed that the initial names and content of the Perranzabuloe Focus Groups to be will be addressed further at the next SG meeting.

Communication

Robert Norrington presented his communication scheme including his proposed Logo, and parish map. Both were accepted in principle for use.
However slight amendments of the Logo were requested, and will be presented at the next SG meeting.

Nick Joy talked about wishes to send a flyer to all residents in the parish and suggested using the monthly advertising brochure as a ‘carrier’ – the leaflet would form a wrap-around . The producers of the brochure are prepared to print and distribute the flyer for £250. Considerable concern was expressed by members of the SG that the coverage of the parish is far more limited than claimed by the company. Residents in Bolingey, for example, and outlying areas do not receive it. It was agreed that alternative methods for distribution would be considered. RN estimated that the cost of printing and distribution for a single sheet will be below £500.

There was considerable discussion around the timing and content of the initial leaflet/communication, and whether – if a survey – how to make it easy for people to reply. Suggestions included using Freepost and encouraging replies through the website.

A proposal was made that RN and NJ should go ahead with preparation of a simple informative (not questionnaire) leaflet for consideration at the next meeting but this was dropped after a strong objection. It was left that RN and NJ would come to the next meeting with proposals for further  consideration.

A portable exhibition should be considered to take around the various areas of the Parish, as well as a permanent exhibition in the library.

Other Items raised and Items for next meeting

Nick Joy raised his interest in reaching people unable to attend these meetings, particularly in more distant parts of this large parish, by using FaceWatch. It was suggested that a limited, preliminary trial could take place at the next meeting.

Jenny Bowden and Kevin Havill supported the idea of creating a database for data that would be useful for many of the Focus Groups, and they agreed to take the lead in a Focus Group with a title such as Baseline Information.

There was discussion about the need to prepare a Project Plan and the idea of inviting Allan Clarke from St Agnes to come and talk about his work for their NP, and how they programmed the Project.

Items to discuss at the next meeting will include:

  • Formation of Focus Groups
  • First communication
  • Meetings around the Parish outside of Perranporth

Date of Next Steering Group Meetings.

Tuesday 9th January and Thursday 8th February, both at 7pm Parish
Council offices.

2017 11 30 Agenda

The next meeting to progress our Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) will be at:

7pm on Thursday the 30th of November
at the Parish Council offices
(Budnick, Perranporth, TR6 0DB)

Since our last meeting there has been progress towards the next set of requirements for Perranzabuloe to have a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). We want to firstly update everybody on the plans so as to get comments and suggestions and to confirm that the full Steering Group and everybody else who wishes to be involved agrees with the planned progress to date. This will then lead on to what we need to do next. Much of this is dependent on what the community wants and where a NDP can help this. This will be progressed at the next meeting.

Agenda

  1. Attendance and Apologies
  2. Approval of Minutes of Meeting on 2nd November 2017
  3. Matters arising
  4. Terms of Reference
  5. Steering Group Tasks and Opportunities (open discussion)

  8. Items for next meeting
