The Camelford NDP has been signed off as legally compliant. Cornwall Council are organising the consultation between 14 November 2019 and 9 January 2020 for eight weeks instead of six due to the Christmas period as nothing will happen between the Christmas holidays. Documents will be available to view at the Town Hall and at the Medical Centre from 11 November.
A notice will be published in the Cornish Guardian hopefully next week

CTC are delighted to announce some fantastic events coming up to celebrate the Festive Season.  The annual Winter Festival starts at 6pm with a traditional parade led by Camelford Town Band.  Bring your lanterns with you and join in with some carol singing!  There will be music at the bandstand from Smug Jars, with the lights being switched on at 7pm.  Our fantastic firework display starts at 7.30pm.  Our thanks go to the Smeeth family for allowing us to use their field for the firework display.

Shops will be open late, and there will be food stalls and mulled wine flowing.  Parking is free from 5pm at Churchfield Car Park and free at Clease Road Car Park.  Road closures are in place, so ensure you get here before the road closure at 6pm.

Thanks to the Great Western Railway (GWR) Customer and Communities Improvement Fund (CCIF) Grant of £35k secured by Camelford Town Council, Wicksteed (the chosen contractor) has now started work on the refurbishment of Enfield Park!  It is anticipated that the work will be completed  by 14 November, with a grand opening provisionally set for 30 November 2019 to coincide with the Winter Festival.   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.

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.  Regulation 14 has now been completed (pre-submission public consultation) and CTC are at the final stages before Regulation 16 (the legal bit).  At this stage, the plan is submitted to Cornwall Council and their legal team to check before it goes out to public consultation, this time organised by Cornwall Council.  The aim is for the Plan to be adopted in the Spring 2020.
