The Plan

Padstow Parish Neighbourhood Plan – Pre-Submission Version

The Pre-Submission Version of the Padstow Parish Neighbourhood Plan represents the vision and aspirations of the communities of the Parish for the development of their neighbourhood. These have been gathered and interpreted through an extensive and inclusive process of community engagement and consultation.

The Parish of Padstow presents a unique set of planning challenges. It has taken time and careful consideration to craft a set of local planning policies that will safeguard everything we regard as special whilst allowing the area to change and develop in response to the needs and demands of modern life and living in a way that is acceptable.

The preparation of the Neighbourhood Plan has been undertaken by a Steering Group of town councillors with the help of many community volunteers who participated in working groups, task groups and workshops and assisted with consultation events. They have been ably supported by the staff of the Town Council. My thanks are extended to everyone who has helped us to produce this version of the Neighbourhood Plan. I should also like to thank Cornwall Council for its encouragement and support throughout.

As required by Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012, we are making this version of the Padstow Parish Neighbourhood Plan available for consultation with those who “may be affected by the proposals for a neighbourhood development plan”. We shall consider all comments and suggestions very carefully and make necessary revisions to the Plan before it is submitted to Cornwall Council for independent examination.
