The Roseland Peninsula Neighbourhood Development Plan is now formally made and can be used from 9th December 2015, as part of the development plan in development management decisions in the Roseland Neighbourhood Plan Area. This comprises of the St Just in Roseland, Veryan, Gerrans, Ruan Lanihorne and Philleigh Parishes.

The Roseland Peninsula NDP has been assessed to determine whether any of its policies would be in conflict with the policies of the Cornwall Local Plan and a statement has been inserted at the beginning of the Plan document. In the case of the Roseland Peninsula NDP it was concluded that two policies of the NDP are out of general conformity with the Cornwall Local plan. These are Policies HO3 (Re-use of redundant buildings) and Policy HO4 (new affordable housing). They are not in general conformity because they require affordable housing to be provided below the new thresholds set out in national guidance and the adopted Cornwall Local Plan (2016). The reasons also set out how we propose that the policies will continue to be used.  The adopted neighbourhood plan, report and decision notice and the report and decision relating to general conformity are available to download below:

The referendum for the Roseland Neighbourhood Development Plan was held on 20 August 2015. Information on the results of the Referendum and other documents are available to download below:
