Planning Applications & Development

Planning & Development:

We have joined up to the Cornwall Council scheme to work with developers during the pre-planning stage.  This will ensure that any discussions we have are fair and consistent.

Our Parish Profile explains how we see our parish at present – this document is open for change as we see different elements growing and changing,   whilst our Pre Application protocol explains how we will deal with  meetings held before planning applications have been submitted..

Please be aware that there are already planning documents in place which are referred to.  These include the Cornwall AONB Management Plan 2016-2012 and the Cornwall Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) + Mawnan Allocation list.  These documents have gone through public consultations, evaluations and council review.  Our NDP, which is now at referendum stage and holds significant planning weight, will be added to this list.

We’ve been asked by Devon & Cornwall Police to highlight Project Wingspan which is the forcewide campaign to highlight the national wildlife crime priorities by working with partners to raise public awareness to prevent wildlife crime across Devon and Cornwall.  This is vital within the planning process as destruction of animal habitat prior to or during the execution of developments is something that should not be happening.  For people considering (re-) development of rural spaces please consider getting additional advice on protected species  such as BATS and BADGERS

Planning Applications

As we receive in planning applications from Cornwall Council to consult on we will now be listing these here for public information. These will be discussed at the next council meeting. ( The Planning Committee meet in August if required)

The following applications will be dealt with at the Parish Council meeting on 17th February 2022 in the Memorial Hall

Ref. No: PA22/00338   Vean Grove Hill Mawnan Smith TR11 5ER    Erection of detached dwelling and domestic garage with variation of condition 2 of decision PA18/00940 dated 26.03.2018.

Part of the new planning systems is the introduction of a CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) alongside Section 106 agreements on new developments.  This money will be used to supplement works within our parish that  assist with addressing the demands that development places on an area.
