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 ST CLEER NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN IS NOW BEING EXAMINED BY AN INDEPENDENT EXAMINER APPOINTED JOINTLY BY CORNWALL COUNCIL AND ST CLEER PARISH COUNCIL

The Draft St Cleer Neighbourhood Development Plan was published for consultations on 31st March 2019 for a 7 week period ending 19th May 2019.  Over the summer the Steering Group have reviewed all the comments received. During that period conformation was also received from Cornwall Council that a Strategic Environmental Assessment of the Plan was not required. 

Following the review of comments made, the Neighbourhood Development Plan was adjusted and formally submitted to Cornwall Council on 1st November 2019. Cornwall Council  signed off the Plan as being legally compliant and then consulted residents and other interested stakeholders on the Plan, from Thursday 5th December 2019 to 30th January 2020 for eight week’s due to the Christmas period. You can view the comments made by typing the Neighbourhood Planning application number PA19/00029/NDP into the Cornwall Council online planning register.

Following the 8 week consultation period, the representations were collated and sent for independent examination. That process is taking place now. If the Examiner believes that the Neighbourhood Plan meets all of its requirements a referendum will take place which will allow residents to decide whether the Neighbourhood Plan should be used by the Council to determine planning applications in the St Cleer area. NOTE: Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the referendum will not take place until May 2021 at the earliest. in the meantime, if after the independent examination Cornwall Council indicate that the Plan should proceed to referendum, it will be given significant weight in planning application decision making until the referendum result.

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 can’t be ignored when planning applications are decided by Cornwall Council, Planning Inspectors, or the Government.
