Torpoint Neighbourhood Development Plan Update February 2023
Over the last few years, work on our Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has regularly continued by the town’s representative steering group. Once approved by residents, the proposed plan provides the framework and direction to facilitate the delivery of much needed new housing and employment within Torpoint. We are currently undertaking a statutory environment and habitat assessment of our proposals, which will be followed in early summer by a full and inclusive community consultation, before a potential referendum next year. Lookout for further newsletters and information on the website.
February 2021 update:
The Neighbourhood Development Plan Steering Group are progressing the work towards the next submission stage of the Torpoint Neighbouhood Development Plan. Residents' will recall the consultations and events undertaken which led to the adoption of the Vision for Torpoint and the first draft of the Neighbourhood Plan. The draft was submitted to Cornwall Council and the supporting statutory planning authorities for initial queries and comments, of which there were a large number.
Over the last 18 months the Town Council has continued to engage with planning consultants to support the Steering Group to incorporate and revise the draft with the Strategic and Site Specific Policies. The next stage of the Neighbourhood Development Plan process is for the appointed consultants to consolidate the updated information into one document, which will then be submitted for Pre-Submission consultation to Cornwall Council. If you are interested in supporting the development of the Neighbourhood Plan, or want to hear more, please contact the Town Clerk, firstname.lastname@example.org.
