The first ‘drop-in’ session about the draft Falmouth Neighbourhood Plan was held on 24th January at the Municipal Buildings/Library and was well attended. Over fifty local people came in to chat with a member of the Neighbourhood Plan Team, each receiving ten minutes or more of guidance. Lots of very helpful comments and suggestions were made, that we can look at including in the submitted version of the Plan.
Three more sessions are planned:
Tuesday 7th February – (11am to 3pm) – Falmouth Watersports Centre
Saturday 11th February – (11am to 3pm) – on The Moor
Wednesday 15th February – (6.30pm to 8.30pm) – The Library at Falmouth School
You can also see the Plan and make comments on-line or at Falmouth Library.
There are three more drop in sessions where you can also put questions to members of the Neighbourhood Plan team about the policies and proposals in the Plan:
* Tuesday 7th February – (11am to 3pm) – Falmouth Watersports Centre
* Saturday 11th February – (11am to 3pm) – on The Moor
* Wednesday 15th February – (6.30pm to 8.30pm) – The Library at Falmouth School
In 2014 Cornwall Council agreed to follow up Falmouth Town Council’s request to make an Article 4 Direction to control HMO development in Falmouth. It was agreed that this would occur alongside the development of a Neighbourhood Plan to contain policies to help implement the Article 4.
Since then a considerable amount of work has been done by Cornwall Council in preparation, including obtaining the necessary permissions to proceed, legal assessments, legal drafting, evidence gathering, policy discussions etc. Falmouth Town Council and the Neighbourhood Plan team have been assisting this process throughout, for example by affixing the necessary legal notices to more than 100 locations around the town during May 2016.
The process has now come to a conclusion and the Article 4 Direction has been made.
