Mylor Neighbourhood Development Plan

Neighbourhood planning was introduced in the Localism Act 2011. It is an important and powerful tool that gives communities statutory powers to shape how their communities develop.

What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan?

In very simple terms, a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is:

  • A document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area – planning policies are used to decide whether to approve planning applications
  • Written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority
  • A powerful tool to ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place

Who is responsible for the Neighbourhood Development Plan?

As the Qualifying Body Mylor Parish Council have responsibility for the development of the plan.  A Steering Group, comprised of members of the community was formed, with the sole purpose of overseeing the preparation of the NDP until final submission to independent examination, and a community referendum, and ultimately adopted by Cornwall Council as part of planning policy.

The local community have been engaged along the way to ensure that the plan is representative of Mylor Parish aspirations.

The Steering Group are accountable to Mylor Parish Council for providing strategic development of the processes and to develop the NDP up to final draft submission.

The Steering Group have dedicated a lot of time and effort, over the past 3 years, to understand the process, draft the Plan and manage high levels of community engagement throughout.  For this we wish to thank them, their support is truly appreciated.

NDP Consultant

In October, having reached a critical stage in the process, the Parish Council hired the services of an NDP consultant - Stuart Todd of Stuart Todd Associates. Stuart has a wealth of experience and knowledge in all stages of developing a Plan right through to referendum.  He will be supporting us through to referendum, when hopefully the plan will be ‘Made’.

How a Plan is Made

There are three main stages to producing a neighbourhood plan:

Stage 1 – Getting Established

•Designation of the neighbourhood area

•Building an evidence base

•Publicity and engagement

Stage 1 is Complete

Stage 2 – Preparing the Plan

•Drafting the plan

•Meeting the basic conditions

•Pre-submission Consultation

We have just completed the Pre-Submission Consultation and the responses are being reviewed and analysed.

Stage 2 – Bringing the Plan in Force



•Independent examination


This Stage is yet to start

Next Steps

We have just completed the Pre-submssion, or Regulation 14, Consultaion with the public.  The consultation comments received are currently being considered and analysed by the Consultant who will present reccomended amendments to the Plan.  The Parish Council will then consider the recommendations and agree which ones, if any, should be adopted.

The amended plan will be then be submitted for independent examination.  From this stage on responsibility for taking the process forward lies with the local planning authority who will publicise the plan (Regulation 16). The independent examination will then consider whether the neighbourhood plan meets the basic conditions and other legal requirements.  If the neighbourhood plan is found to be satisfactory, with modifications if necessary, then the local authority will arrange for the referendum to take place.


People on the electoral register will be entitled to vote in the referendum. If more than 50% of those voting in the referendum vote ‘yes’, then the neighbourhood plan is ‘Made’ and becomes part of the statutory development plan for the area.  This means that it will form part of the statutory development plan for Mylor Parish, so any decisions about whether or not to grant planning permission in the Parish in the future must be made by taking our Neighbourhood Development Plan into consideration.

This is obviously a really critical stage in the process, and EVERYONE in Mylor Parish (Flushing, Mylor Bridge and all surrounding settlements) who can vote should do so.

We currently anticipate a referendum taking place towards the middle of 2021.
