NEXT STAGE COMPLETED
We are happy to report that Mawnan Parish Council has submitted to Cornwall Council, on behalf of the NDP steering group, the finished draft of the Neighbourhood Development Plan. On receiving the draft plan proposal and supporting documents, Cornwall Council is responsible for checking that the submitted neighbourhood plan has followed the proper legal process, such as the neighbourhood area being designated, and that the legal requirements for consultation and publicity have been followed.
The full draft Mawnan NDP is a total of 16 documents, totalling over 1,000 pages. Some of these were external documents, such as the AONB management plan, but many of the others were documents that were available to you when we ran the public consultation online last September and October, but revised to take account of comments and observations raised with us.
The main additions were a Basic Conditions Statement demonstrating how we have followed the necessary legal steps, and a Consultation Statement which focuses on the consultation last autumn, but also includes a summary of previous community engagement and consultation that has been undertaken. It summarises the main outcomes of such engagement and how this informed the content of the NDP.
All the documents are now on the Mawnan NDP website (www.mawnan.org) and may be directly accessed clicking here.
The link will take you directly to the page on the website outlining with a brief description each and every constituent document, and enabling you to click on any of these you may wish to read. The main Policy Document, along with the Non-Designated Heritage Assets and Local Green Spaces documents, have seen some minor changes to take account of comments, observations and corrections submitted to us during the consultation last autumn. The Consultation Statement, and its appendices, is a new document required of us at this time. It contains a huge amount of information (the appendices alone total 598 pages including in-full the correspondence we entered into with those who had submitted comments).
