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.
