A Neighbourhood Plan sets out the community’s views on the development and use of land. This includes setting policies on where development should go, how development is designed or, to give permission for certain types of development.
Unlike a Town Plan of the past, a Neighbourhood Plan becomes a legal part of the planning system. Once a plan is made, and it has been adopted by Cornwall Council, it becomes a part of Cornwall Council’s Local Plan for the area and must be considered in the approval of planning applications.
The Town Council are in the early stages of developing a plan for the parish of Redruth. Although led by the council this is very much a community driven plan and as such anyone interested in contributing should contact the Chairman of the Steering Group, Cllr Barbara Ellenbroek
. Topic Groups are already actively working to pull together information from previous area plans and on subjects such as Economy; Housing; Heritage; Open Spaces; and Public Services.
Initial Survey - PFA Research Ltd have been commissioned by the Town Council to carry out an initial survey of residents about the town, its infrastructure and the community. It is anticipated that this survey will form the basis of the Neighbourhood Development Plan for Redruth.
A copy of the plan is available here. If you have any comments/suggestions about this survey, please ensure that you make them known to us by emailing the Town Council - remember it is your plan, so have your input.
There is a meeting of the Neighbourhood Planning Committee to be held on Monday 18th September 2017 at The Chambers at 6.30pm.
