Neighbourhood Plan


The draft Neighbourhood Plan for Carn Brea Parish was published on 28th October 2022 for 6 weeks of consultations with the community [ending 9th December 2022].  It is a community-led framework to guide future development and growth of the area. It includes a 'vision' for the future and planning policies that deal with issues like housing, employment, heritage and transport matters.

Our Vision:

  • To protect the unique character and environment of Carn Brea Parish.
  • To celebrate the history and culture of Carn Brea Parish.
  • To enhance biodiversity, habitats and opportunities to tackle climate change.
  • To serve the needs of the local community.
  • To connect rural communities together.
What Happens Next?

After the draft Plan has been published and the community have commented on it, it will be re-drafted and submitted to Cornwall Council, who will do legal checks on it and then carry out a further consultation. It will then go to an Independent Examiner, who will check that the Plan conforms to the rules for NDPs. The Examiner will report to Cornwall Council, which will arrange a public referendum in which our residents can vote to adopt the Plan.

A simple majority vote is needed for the adoption.

As the Plan progresses, we will continue to update this page.
