All the work on the plan is by volunteers. Funding comes from a central agency, Locality, contracted by the government to pass funds and support to local councils for groups developing local Plans. The Town Council bids for what we need, for example printing costs for the survey. We’ve also had a grant from Live West. There is no direct cost to the Town Council or Cornwall Council, although we of course get valuable help and advice from them.
