END OF YEAR ROUND UP
The Mawnan Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has now gone through its examination by an independent professional planner appointed by Cornwall Council, and has been scrutinised for compliance with all relevant planning regulations at national and local (Cornwall) level. Some modifications have been made by the examiner to ensure compliance with those regulations, and the draft Plan will be modified to take account of these along with some further text for clarification.
The Plan will be resubmitted by the Parish Council in January to Cornwall Council who in turn prepare a report recommending, as we hope and expect, that Mawnan's NDP can proceed to referendum. At this point the finalised documents become publicly accessible and will be available to read on the NDP website, and carry full weight in all planning applications and decisions. We will of course let you know as soon as this happens.
Following publication the NDP will be taken by Cornwall Council to a referendum of all residents of Mawnan Parish, probably in March/April, when a simple majority vote will finally establish the NDP in the planning hierarchy.
