ST ERTH NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
WHY VOTE YES?
The Neighbourhood Plan identifies sites for development within the parish which will have the least impact and keeps the village as a single entity by maintaining its separation from other settlements.  It contributes to ensuring that development: mitigates against flooding; encompasses highways safety; supports crime prevention; enables green and open spaces protection and expansion; gives community buildings protection whilst allowing for improvements, expansion and development eg school facilities; encourages and protects employment, industry and agriculture; and protects listed buildings and the conservation areas within the parish.

VOTE YES! The Plan has been drafted by residents, for the residents and in response to residents' comments on how they would like to see the parish progress to 2030.  It is now finalised, approved by an External Examiner and Cornwall Council and ready to be put to referendum on Thursday 24 May 2018.   This will allow all electors of St Erth Parish to decide whether the Plan should be used by the Council to determine planning applications within the Parish.  Support this Plan, a YES VOTE will show Cornwall Council that the residents of St Erth Parish have confidence in the Plan's ability to shape its future in line with its residents' wishes.  VOTE YES!   View the Plan here

PHASE 2 Development off Church Street!
Pre-application for 21 homes off Meadowsweet Close leading up to Ercus Way development, back of Fore Street.  This is on agricultural land which is in use.  Site not identified for development in the St Erth Neighbourhood Plan.  If you want to stop over-development and ruination of the village VOTE YES to the St Erth Neighbourhood Plan on Thursday 24 May.
