A Neighbourhood Plan is a document that sets out how development is controlled for a particular area in the future. It has to comply with national and local policies, but it gives local people a much bigger say in how these policies are put into effect. It has a legal status and must be taken into account when considering planning applications in the future.
The Town Council believes that it is important for the future of Lostwithiel that we prepare what is known as a 'Neighbourhood Development Plan'. At the Town Council’s request Cornwall Council have designated Lostwithiel a 'Neighbourhood Area' in accordance with the law introduced in 2012.
The Town Council would like to see a plan that runs until 2030 to coincide with the local plan currently being prepared for the whole of Cornwall.
