The story so far


March: the Town Council decides to apply for the parish to be designated as a neighbourhood area, for the development of a Neighbourhood Development Plan.  Cornwall Council approves this.

November: a first public meeting is called to discuss the need for a Plan.



January: a second public meeting sets up the Steering Group and three specialist groups, Built Environment, Natural Environment (later broadened to include Historic Environment) and Community Engagement.  Built and Natural Environment Groups begin to scope their subjects and gather information.  Community Engagement prepares for the first round of Public consultation.

June/July: `Have Your Say’ open events ask residents what they value in the Parish and what they would like to see in the Plan.  329 Residents completed the feedback form and 125 school students gave their views.  Have Your Say 2018 Final Report

September onwards:  the groups continue their research and begin to draft questions for the house-to-house survey planned for 2019, using the `Have Your Say’ results.  The Steering Group begins to consult key stakeholders.    We confirm that sustainability and tackling the climate crisis must be an important part of the Plan.
