Parish Plan Update
Friday 2nd March 2012
The first phase of the joint Parish Plan Analysis, the analysis of the questions, was finished around Christmas time. The second phase, the collation of all of the comments onto a single questionnaire, was a singularly slow process and was completed at the end of February.
Thereafter the first draft conclusions will be drawn from the results and updated by the Parish Councillors to take account of any new regulations or changing situations. A public event will be held to allow parishioners to comment on these. Following this the plan proper will be drawn up.
The Governments new planning regulations may require us to prepare a "Neighbourhood Plan", possibly with other adjacent Parishes. This would not replace the Parish Plan as it concentrates only on Housing and Planning issues but it will require us to accept, as a minimum, any new housing/development which the Cornwall Core Strategy allocates to us. This is all a little hazy as yet but we will hopefully be able to clarify the position as the regulations come into law.
