Cornwall Council is consulting residents and other interested stakeholders on the plan for the St Erth Parish area. Consultation will run between 12th October and 23rd November. You can comment by emailing us at , by typing the Neighbourhood Planning application number PA17/00029/NDP into the online planning register, or send us your response in writing to the address below.
The plan proposal includes a copy of a map and statement which identifies the area to which the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan relates; a consultation statement; the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan, a statement explaining how the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan meets the requirements of paragraph 8 of Schedule 4B to the 1990 Act (the Basic Conditions Statement) and the Evidence base document (available online).
