What is a Neighbourhood Plan (NP)?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development, growth and conservation of an area. A NP will be part of the statutory development plan for the area, subject to conforming to National Policies and the Cornwall Local Plan. This statutory status gives Neighbourhood Plan’s far more weight in planning decisions and can set out local level planning policies for the area, shaping the future development of our community.

Do we Really Have a Say?

This is a real opportunity to have an active say in the future of St Erme Parish. The plan cannot be produced without you! We need your help in identifying key issues and your input in the plan is vital. Remember the plan will only be adopted after a local referendum of the parish.

What if we do not produce a Neighbourhood Plan?

The future growth of our parish will be governed by National and Cornwall Local Policies and not adapted to our parish needs. If we do not have a Neighbourhood Plan it will be harder to fight for what is right for us as a community

A Neighbourhood Plan can only come from you, the community, so it’s very important that you are involved. Help us produce a plan that is right for our community. Please remember without your support we will not be able to take this forward!
