Status of Documentation.
An email was received from Cornwall Council detailing issues in the NDP that need to be addressed. Their comments on the DRAFT suggest that there is no conflict with their Local Plan or National Policy. All comments are up for us to review and decide upon. The Focus Groups expect to meet during the week beginning starting 14th March to address these comments, passing these through to ST who will combine these into the corrected document.
It was agreed that ST will summarise the CC feedback for the SG, determining what is easy and obvious to accept and include, as well as what needs more consideration and discussion by the SG. ST commented that all feedback is potentially relevant, regardless of the number of people who commented.
It was suggested that public feedback should be sent to ST.
Organisation of Exhibition
The exhibitions will hopefully be organised for the end of April to early May for the start of themSection 14- Public Consultation. A minimum of one evening in Perranporth and Goonhavern (5pm-9pm is envisaged).
Billboards/Posters at the event could include the following:-
NDP Summary based upon the unused FULL consultation summary leaflet. This will be mailed to the whole of the Parish in advance of the exhibition, together with details of the exhibition itself. The abridged version of this was the mailshot sent out in January 2022. This led to the Website visitor traffic peaking at 76 site visitors on 19th Feb as compared with the normal 3-11 daily visitors. It returned to 5-15 daily visitors after. Chart below
Summary of housing data and arguments that lead to the proposed Settlement Boundaries and the Primary Resident Policy.

This lead to a predictable increase in visitors numbers to the www.perranplan.co.uk NDP Website.
March 2022 update:
You can see from the chart below that over time, site visitor numbers returned to the sub 10 a day after the letter update:
Looking longer term, there are peaks and troughs to Website visitor numbers.

UPDATE ON THE PERRANZABULOE NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN
To all Residents and Businesses in Perranzabuloe Parish
Perranzabuloe Parish Council initiated work on a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) for the Parish in November 2017.
An NDP, when adopted (or “made”), sits alongside the Cornwall Council Local Plan. This means that its policies carry real weight (i.e., have “teeth”) in the planning system, with its recommendations and policies being used to help determine planning applications within the Parish.
The community and business surveys were undertaken in the Summer of 2019 by the NDP Steering Group (which comprises of volunteer members of the local community and Parish Councillors). Subsequently, they have been busy working on the content of the draft NDP.
Work has included undertaking studies and completing factual information on topics including, but not limited to, housing, settlement boundaries, heritage, local green spaces and landscape value. This work is important to support the planning policies in the draft NDP. Using Government funding, they have also commissioned, two documents which will form part of the NDP itself, namely a Design Code for the Parish to ensure that any future housing development in the future meets local requirements for design, and a Masterplan for Perranporth. This identifies key project proposals that could come forward to enhance the village centre, and its role in supporting the local economy, as well as the needs of local residents and visitors alike.
Where are we now?
There will be a full public consultation in the Spring of 2022. You, as residents and businesses of the Parish, will get the opportunity to discuss the NDP with the Steering Group members who have led the work. You will also be able to comment on the NDP’s content. Assuming there are no Covid-19 restrictions in place there will be a public exhibition. The draft NDP has been sent to Cornwall Council for an initial review and to consider if the NDP requires any further sustainability tests to meet Government planning regulations. The consultation in the Spring will also give us the opportunity to consult a mandatory list of statutory and strategic consultees outside of the Parish.
The NDP is the Community’s Plan and it is therefore important that the NDP continues to be shaped by your views as well as the studies and earlier consultations undertaken. We encourage you to look at the draft NDP, as well as the Design Code, Masterplan, and the accompanying evidence base studies. All documents are available on the project website at www.perranplan.co.uk/documents/.
If you have any comments to make on the NDP prior to the full public consultation in the Spring, the NDP Steering Group will be happy to hear from you:
Pre 2021-11-01 meeting notes for a presentation to the Perranzabuloe Parish Council to give them an update:
We started in late 2017, getting our required formal Cornwall Council Designation on the 29th November 2017.
Our 2018 to 2019 meetings tended to have 10 or more members of the Steering Group and 2 or 3 others.
Early meetings we had 20+ attendees and most of the 14 Steering Group members.
Over time, we lost several key contributors, and took on some key consultants who’s contributions have been
invaluable. Most important has been Stuart Todd of Stuart Todd Associates Ltd & Lucy Wilson Richards of Tirwel.
We’ve had consistent, support and help from our Perranzabuloe Parish Council, in particular the parish clerk,
We’ve had amazing support, work, help and input from so many.
The core group of volunteers that attended almost all meetings since 2017, that have done the most work, are
listed, alphabetically below. If this core had not stuck with it, the project would have collapse.
o Kevin Havill
o Phil Moore
o Phillip Henwood
o Roger Kayes
o Rory Jenkins
o William Rogers
An NDP lays out what we can evidence the community wants in terms of nudging the planning process to protect what the
community values and sees as special.
It looks to enhance existing provision of facilities and assets and provide support for additional facilities and development
subject to being a response to demand and local needs, while ensuring that there is no adverse impact on the things that
are valued the most in our natural and built environments.
The main 120 page document covers many themes including:
Waste, including waste water
Natural Environment, Landscape and Coastal Management
Identifying and protecting the environment, including,
Settlement gaps & green buffers
Local Green Spaces, Views & Vistas
Coastal Change Management Plan
Heritage Assets and the Historic Environment. Identifying and giving protection to these.
Traffic & Transport including parking
Business, Employment and Retail, including Tourism
Primary Residence Policy
If successful, on for the Parish Council planning group to keep an eye on re applications.
Settlement Boundaries around Perranporth, Bolingey & Goonhavern.
Development outside of these areas will meet more challenging requirements.
Policy 8 in the Cornwall Local Plan says 6+ dwellings must contribute toward affordable housing need. From 6‐10 units, a
financial contribution in lieu of on‐site provision will be acceptable, from 11 upwards, must contribute to meeting affordable
Policy 9, Rural Exceptions Sites, there is no size limit to which the policy for 50% affordable housing applies.
Perranzabuloe Design Code
Perranporth Strategic Masterplan
The 120 page main document has all of the detail.
The consultation summary leaflet has a cut down version of all the policies, where the section headings are:
• Sustainable Development
• Natural Environment, Landscape and Coastal Management
• Energy and Wastewater
• Traffic and Transport
• Leisure & Wellbeing
• Heritage Assets and the Historic Environment
• Business, Employment and Retail

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.
