Enfield Park is going to get a makeover thanks to the Great Western Railway (GWR) Customer and Communities Improvement Fund (CCIF) Grant of £35k secured by Camelford Town Council.  In addition to this much needed boost in funds, money was received from local housing development (Cornwall Council) and matched funding by Camelford Town Council have meant that this much loved park will get much needed new equipment, whilst celebrating and promoting the heritage of Camelford Station, which was once part of the historic North Cornwall Railway line.  Station signs will be incorporated into the play experience to depict the journey from Halwill Junction to Padstow (finishing at the boat)  There will also be an installation of photographic and information boards, giving information about the history of Camelford Station and the railway line, with a link to more information for adults wishing to know more.

After going to public consultation, Wicksteed was chosen as the company to design and install the new equipment.  CTC are hoping works will start in October 2019, finishing in time for October half-term.  CTC is working with Wicksteed on ensuring that as much of the equipment as possible is wheelchair friendly and encourages participation from those less abled.

Publication of the Camelford Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)

(Pre-Submission Version – The Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012 (Regulation 14)

Consultation Opens for comment on 30 May 2019 to 11 July 2019

 

Camelford Town Council has prepared a NDP for the period to 2018 – 2030.  The NDP sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning  policies which will be used to determine planning proposals locally. In 2014, Camelford Town Council (CTC) appointed a local research company “PFA Research” to work with the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) team to devise a comprehensive consultation survey, to help understand the make-up of the town’s needs in order to prepare the NDP. This survey was sent to all households in the Parish and on the CTC website, followed by various drop-in events including the Camelford Carnival in 2015, the Camelford Show in 2016 and an on-line survey in 2017.

All this information was used by the NDP Team to outline the policies for a plan which CTC hope will address some key issues around housing, the economy/employment, transport/infrastructure, community facilities/amenities, landscape/green spaces and renewable energy.  THE REGULATION 14 DRAFT OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE WEBSITE UNDER PLANNING/NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN FROM 30 MAY 2019.

Neighbourhood Plans are strengthened by public feedback, so it is really important that you have your say at this stage.  During this period, CTC would be grateful for your comments. CTC will also consult developers, community organisations, adjoining parish councils, businesses, land owners and national organisation ( e.g. Natural England, South West Water, Environment Agency).
