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. Thank you too for everyone who came to the three Redruth Conversation events in January and February 2020. Your input is much appreciated.


The Redruth Neighbourhood Plan has been awarded some technical support assistance from Locality. The Redruth Housing Needs Assessment is being finalised and will be published in the spring. Work on Masterplan support for the Redruth Brewery site is starting.


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 Tuesday 21st April 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














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.
