Neighbourhood Plan

Redruth Neighbourhood Plan - Right Up Your Street, Planning for Your Future

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 it is designed or to give permission for certain types of development. We aim for Redruth to have its own plan to empower the town to take greater control over its future and make it a better place for YOU, your family and friends.

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 developing a plan for the parish of Redruth. 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.


Initial Survey - 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.   This survey will form the basis of the Neighbourhood Development Plan for Redruth. A copy of the report is available here.

Working Groups - there are currently five working groups actively pulling together information:


  • Heritage
  • Housing
  • Transport, Infrastructure and Parking
  • Town Centre, Tourism, Economy and Business
  • Public Services (Health, Education, Amenities, Open Spaces and Policing)


A meeting of the Planning Committee Sub Group, Neighbourhood Planning will be held on Monday 18th March 2019 at 6.30pmA copy of the agenda is available here.  A copy of the most recent signed minutes from the Sub Group is available here.
