Neighbourhood Planning Activity in Cornwall

Neighbourhood Plans in Cornwall

Before a neighbourhood plan can be prepared, the parish or town council preparing the plan must apply to Cornwall Council to designate a neighbourhood area:

  • Preparing a Neighbourhood Plan
  • Fill in our letter template explaining why the area is appropriate to be designated as a neighbourhood area
  • Attach your map showing the proposed designation area
  • Contact us for our mapping service if you need a map: 
  • A cluster is an area covering more than one parish. If it is a cluster we will publish your application on the online planning register for at least 6 weeks. This is so that local people have time to make representations

Our neighbourhood planning activity map shows the progress of neighbourhood plans across Cornwall.

Progress of Neighbourhood Plans in Cornwall and Documents

Planning decisions must be made in accordance with an adopted development plan. This is unless material considerations indicate otherwise.  The adopted development plan includes the following polices:

You can view the active neighbourhood planning proposals through the online planning register. Either select the neighbourhood plan below or type the reference directly into the register.  Please make sure you are on the Documents tab. This will display all the documents and comments that have been added to the application.  Please reorder the list of documents by date published to bring the current documents to the top.

The neighbourhood plan referendum version will be made if more than 50% of people vote in favour of Cornwall Council using the neighbourhood plan to help it determine planning applications in the neighbourhood plan area.  The made version will be under the Document Type: Plan – Approved Amendments, Description: Made NDP.
