Climate Change Development Plan Document

We need your help to help address the Climate Change Emergency.

Public consultation on scoping of the new Climate Change Development Plan Document (DPD)

Continue reading

We are creating a new planning document, the Scoping Climate Change DPD.  This will help us tackle the challenges of Climate Change through planning and help us to meet our ambitions by:

  • strengthening existing policies
  • creating new ones
  • making allocations that address the climate change issues affecting Cornwall

On the 18 March 2020 Cornwall Council's Cabinet approved a first document for public consultation. The scoping document provides some initial ideas of what planning might be able to do. It is designed for our communities, businesses and other interested people to make suggestions for new policies or allocations.

Consultation (known as Regulation 18 scoping consultation) will start on 30 March 2020. Details of how to respond will be posted here shortly.

Due to the unprecedented situation caused by Covid-19, the first round of consultation will be held online only. No public events or exhibitions will be organised. This is to protect the health of our communities. We recognise that people may want to contribute ideas and comments through other means. If you are unable to review the document online, we may be able to arrange a paper copy. We will also organise online events and question and answer sessions on skype. 

If you have any questions about the document please use our dedicated email address or phone number:

These have been created specifically for this purpose.
