Redruth Neighbourhood Plan

Right Up Your Street, Planning for Your Future

During 2019 and 2020 the team will be actively seeking views from our community. Thank you to everyone who spoke to us on our stall at Murdoch Day. A bigger thank you to everyone who completed our questionnaire on climate change. The results can be viewed here.


During June to December 2019 we will continue to engage with key Redruth stakeholders and during January and February 2020 we will be seeking the views of residents and visitors.


This will all lead to publishing a draft plan in April 2020 which everyone will be asked to look at and on which everyone will be asked to give their opinion.


The next meeting of the Steering Group will be held on Monday 17th February 2020 at 6:30pm. A copy of the Agenda will be available here five days before the meeting. A copy of the most recent approved minutes from the Steering Group is available here. 


 The Redruth Conversation

      "The Redruth Conversation" about the Neighbourhood Plan started in January 2020.

      Our next Drop-in event is on Tuesday 18th February from 2pm - 7pm at Redruth Community Centre.

      We are running this event in partnership with Treveth Holdings who are consulting on the proposed                    development of 185 dwellings at Tolgus in Redruth.

      A poster for the event is available here.













More details on the Redruth Neighbourhood Plan consultation proposals will be published here.

Although led by the Council this is very much a community-driven plan and this involves working with YOU! If you are interested in contributing, please contact the Chair of the Steering Group, Cllr Barbara Ellenbroek.


Q: Why do a Neighbourhood Plan? 

A: Creating a Neighbourhood Plan gives the community a process to have a say on the use and development of the land within the Parish. The Cornwall Local Plan was formally adopted on 22nd November 2016. This Cornwall Plan provides the overarching planning policy framework for Cornwall, which our Redruth Neighbourhood Plan will be considering. The Cornwall Plan will cover the period up to 2030. The Redruth Neighbourhood Plan will have the same time frame.


Q: When did the Redruth Neighbourhood Plan work start?

A: Redruth started the Neighbourhood Planning process for Redruth Parish in 2017. PFA Research Ltd were commissioned by the Town Council to carry out an initial survey of residents and businesses about the town, its infrastructure and the community. A copy of the report is available here.


Q: Who has been doing the work so far?

A: During 2018 volunteers and Councillors came together in five working groups:- Heritage; Housing; Transport; Town Centre & Economy and Public Services. Over 40 meetings have taken place developing evidence, issues and policy ideas for the topic areas. In addition to these working groups, monthly Steering Group meetings have also taken place, agreeing how to progress the work.

Q: What is the Steering Group?

A: The Steering Group is responsible for delivering the Redruth Neighbourhood Plan and operates to agreed terms of reference. The Steering Group is made up of a cross-section of volunteers from the community, including Town Councillors, up to a maximum of 15 members.
