Neighbourhood Plan

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.

More information on all aspects of our neighbourhood plan will be included on this website.
