Neighbourhood Plan Referendum

The St Enoder Neighbourhood Development Plan Referendum is currently postponed. Regulations linked to the Coronavirus Act 2020 mean that no elections or referendums can take place until 6 May 2021. This includes neighbourhood planning referendums. These provisions will be kept under review and may be amended or revoked in response to changing circumstances. 

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government have updated the current planning guidance to set out that neighbourhood plans awaiting referendums can be given significant weight in decison-making. 

Judicial Review - Pre-action 

Kingsley Developments (SW) Ltd have issued a pre action protocol letter challenging the Cornwall Council decision, dated 14 November 2019, to modify the neighbourhood plan according to the Examiner’s recommendations, publish the plan proposal decision and proceed to referendum.

Cornwall Council has taken legal advice and responded to the grounds of challenge. The letter on behalf of Kingsley Developments and the Cornwall Council response can be viewed here:

The St Enoder Neighbourhood Development Plan has been successful at examination. The independent examiner appointed was Andew Ashcroft and the documents were sent to him on 2nd August 2019. Cornwall Council recieved the examination report on 1st October 2019.

The NDP was modified in line with the Examiner’s recommendations with some minor modifications to the policy justification as made by Cornwall Council and St Enoder Parish Council for clarification purposes. The decision notice was published on 14 November 2019, but there were some inconsistences between the officer report and the amended NDP which were identified by an interested party.

The amended documents replace the previous versions published with the decision notice of 14 November 2019. The amended documents can be downloaded below:
