This page provides you with information on the Roseland Peninsula Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The Roseland Character Guide was endorsed by the five Roseland Parish Councils. This is for use in providing additional information on the character of the Roseland NDP area when applying the policies of the Roseland Neighbourhood Plan.

The Roseland Peninsula Neighbourhood Development Plan is now formally made. It 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 the parishes of:

  • St Just in Roseland
  • Veryan
  • Gerrans
  • Ruan Lanihorne and
  • Philleigh

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. 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. These thresholds are 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 and associated documents 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:

The Independent Examiner for the Roseland Peninsula NDP was Claire Wright. On 24 June 2015, Cornwall Council received the Examiner's report on the Roseland Peninsula NDP. The examiner’s report concludes that subject to the modifications in the report, the Plan should proceed to referendum. The Examiner's report is available to view below:
