Our Preferred Approach for a Core Strategy’ outlined the preferred approach for the 20 year planning strategy ‘Planning Future Cornwall’ and how it would help deliver the vision of Future Cornwall (Cornwall’s Sustainable Community Strategy).

The Community Network Area Discussion Papers showed how the growth and distribution options presented in the preferred approach related to Cornwall's 19 community network areas; and for twelve main towns the potential development sites in and around the towns. The booklets are split into: Bodmin, Bude, Camborne Pool and Redruth, Camelford, Caradon, China Clay, St Austell and St Blazey Fowey and Lostwithiel, Cornwall Gateway, Falmouth and Penryn, Hayle and St Ives, Helston and the Lizard, Launceston, Liskeard and Looe, Newquay and St Columb, St Agnes and Perranporth, Truro and the Roseland, Wadebridge and Padstow and West Penwith.
