Why We Want Your Feedback
The legal right for communities to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan is established under the Localism Act 2012. The Act introduces a new type of community-led plan known as a Neighbourhood Development Plan (referred to here as a Neighbourhood Plan) that will set out policies to direct development and the use of land in a parish or ‘neighbourhood area’. A Neighbourhood Plan can set out a vision for an area, and planning policies for the use and development of land. For example it could cover where new shops, offices or homes should be built and what they should look like, and what open spaces and local amenities should be protected.
Q. How do we do this?
A. We have set up a Committee (The Neighbourhood Planning Team) to produce the Plan. When it is completed and has been passed by an independent examiner and a Parish wide referendum, the Plan will become a legal document. This Plan will then have to be used by Cornwall Council and Tintagel Parish for planning applications.
Some of you have indicated that you would be willing to help, but we would welcome more, especially in the outlying hamlets. Please contact us through the Tintagel Parish website or the Visitors Centre.
We would also especially welcome the views of younger members of the parish because the plan will affect the long term future of your village.
We live in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which encourages tourism. While there may be a need for more housing for local people, uncontrolled housing development would destroy the unique character and beauty of the parish. This would be a travesty for both locals and visitors alike, and would certainly have a negative impact on our tourist trade. However, a Neighbourhood Development Plan would take into account our local housing needs, whilst preventing uncontrolled housing development.
In the questionnaire which you can download from the link above we have posed some questions for you to answer, to give the Team ideas as to what the residents wish to be considered in making the Plan. A space has also been left for you to ask your own questions and make comments. All will be taken into consideration.
