St. Tudy Neighbourhood Plan 

Here are the results of the initial Neighbourhood Plan Survey!

For St. Tudy’s Neighbourhood Plan to be a successful and meaningful document we need the whole community to get involved. If you can offer any help of any kind, or just want to find out more, please contact us: i.hannah@me.com

Why have a neighbourhood plan? Neighbourhood planning provides the opportunity for communities to set out a positive vision for how they want their community to develop over the next ten, fifteen, twenty years in ways that meet identified local need and make sense for local people. They can put in place planning policies that will help deliver that vision or grant planning permission only for the development they want to see. Neighbourhood planning

Neighbourhood planning gives you and your community direct power to develop a shared vision for your area and shape development and future growth. With a neighbourhood plan you can choose where you want new homes, shops and offices to be built, what they should look like, what infrastructure should be provided and what should be protected.

The key stages in neighbourhood planning are as follows:
Step 1: Designating neighbourhood area - DONE
Step 2: Preparing a draft neighbourhood plan or Order (In progress -Initial draft April/May 2020 - please download on this link: neighbourhood plan survey )
Step 3: Pre-submission publicity & consultation
Step 4: Submission of a neighbourhood plan or Order proposal to the local planning authority
Step 5: Independent Examination
Steps 6 and 7: Referendum and Making the neighbourhood plan or Order (bringing it into force) provides a powerful set of tools for local people.

We have divided the initial work the following areas:

  • Housing
  • Natural Environment
  • Historic Buildings - Pam
  • Community Facilities - to include liaison with Village Hall, Community Shop, School, Sports Hub, Playing Fields etc - Various parties to input
  • Transport
  • Business and Employment

The aim is to complete a first draft for consultation later this year.

Local Referendum

A neighbourhood plan, once passed by the community at referendum and brought into force by the local planning authority, becomes part of the development plan for that area.

Every planning application made in the neighbourhood planning area has to be assessed against both the Local Plan and the neighbourhood plan, as well as any material considerations.

The referendum, for the first time, empowers local people to turn out and vote on the future of their neighbourhood.
