Welcome to the St Cleer Neighbourhood Plan website

This website is intended to act as a hub for the St Cleer Neighbourhood Development Plan containing information, news updates and relevant documentation regarding the progress of our Neighbourhood Plan.

LATEST NEWS - The Steering Group are examining the evidence collected and the results of the community engagement survey (see below), to work out what the housing and employment need is for the Parish. It has also examined every cell of land around the Parish's settlements. That puts us into a position where the revised version of the Neighbourhood development Plan can be written up, and work on that is about to commence. Our current expectation is that the Plan will come out for community consultation in late Autumn 2018.

WHAT IS A NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN?
The St Cleer Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan is a new type of plan made under the Localism Act 2011 which gives everyone who lives in the Parish the democratic right to be involved in drawing it up.

WHY ARE WE MAKING ONE?
It can control how land is used for housing, business, shops and leisure. It can also protect green spaces and influence the design of buildings and estates, tackle environmental issues and support the things that make our Parish such a great place to live, work in and visit.

When it is written, everyone who is a registered voter in St Cleer Parish will get a vote in a local referendum to approve or reject the Neighbourhood Plan. If it is approved, the Plan canít be ignored when planning applications are decided by Cornwall Council, Planning Inspectors, or the Government.

SO HAVING YOUR SAY ON PLANNING MATTERS IN ST CLEER PARISH HAS NEVER BEEN SO IMPORTANT!

NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN SURVEY NOW CLOSED - 432 RESPONSES RECEIVED!!

The survey response was well above expectations. A total of 432 responses came in, which is 36.6% of all the homes we delivered to (1,180), which is enough to give us confidence that the response is representative of our community*. The  Steering Group is now using the results to guide the process of preparing planning policies, and we hope to see the new Neighbourhood Plan published in the late autumn 2018.

In the meantime you can view the summary of the results in the news section on this website, by clicking 'Latest News and Events' in the menu above.

* A 95% confidence level that the response is representative of the entire population, within +/- 3.75% margin of error, whilst acknowledging that there is a slight bias towards the views of older people as the number of younger people replying was proportionately lower than the age profile of the community suggests could have replied.
