Cornwall Local Plan
What is a Local Plan and why do we need one?
The Local Plan for Cornwall should set out a vision for growth and identify the quantity and broad location and key sites, for new housing, community facilities, shops and employment. It’s policies will be the basis for planning decisions. If we don’t have a Local Plan, development will still happen, but decisions will be taken in regard to the National Planning Policy Framework without local people having a say on setting local policies. The Local Plan is comprised of a suite of documents as set out below.
