Planning Opportunities

Cornwall adopted the first ever Cornwall Local Plan in November last year. We have an ambitious plan to deliver 3000 homes and 2000 jobs each year for the next five years.

The Planning and Sustainable Development Service is part of a newly formed Directorate. We focus on sustainable economic and housing growth. This includes a substantial increase in:

  • its own capital programme
  • building homes
  • building workspace and
  • building communities.  

We are the largest Local Planning Authority in England. The Council will only deliver the growth we need when all development is of a great quality. We believe our building control service is crucial in this ambition.
