The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) have put together ‘How to shape where you live’ which gives more details about neighbourhood planning. They identify eight simple steps to take in preparing a Neighbourhood Plan and involving the whole community. Following these steps can lead to an effective Neighbourhood Plan and make sure it becomes formally adopted as part of the development plan for our community.
Each month the National UP FRONT team send us updates on how NDPs are faring across the country, whilst Cornwall Council also send us information specific to our county. I will start adding these here too.

Cornwall Local Plan
In lieu of a Chairman’s Report we have been creating set of reports based on the activities of community groups and events taking place in the parish over the year.

another planning application to include underground LPG tanks, electric substation, changes to boundary planting, minor changes to plot sizes 7 changes to the Bawden specification submitted.
We are hopeful that the issues with the diversion of Footpath 9 through the development has been sorted and look forward to a revised Town & Country Planning Order being forthcoming to put the path ‘over the hedge’ as agreed.
Streetlighting – we are in discussion with Cornwall County Highways & Estates to try to get this subject sorted once and for all. As a parish, with the exception of Shute Hill we have no street lights and are trying to maintain this position. We have discussed the possibility of no lights, or at the worst low level bollard lights with Taylor Wimpey who seem amenable. We are waiting on Highways to get back to us.
