The ‘Submission Draft’ of the Falmouth Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to Cornwall Council on15th July 2019.
A copy of the submitted NDP documents can be found by clicking on this link:
On submission, the NDP gains extra weight as a ‘material consideration’ when Planning applications are decided, which will be of importance when new HMO applications are being dealt with.
The next step is for Cornwall Council to carry out legal checks, and then pass the Plan on for Independent Assessment. After the Assessors report has been issued and considered, the Plan will then be put to a local Referendum, when all electors in Falmouth will get to vote on whether the Plan should be used to make planning decisions. If the response is ‘yes’ then the Plan will be ‘made’ and become part of the formal planning policy that guides Cornwall Council in making planning decisions.
A further opportunity to support or object to the NDP occurs during the six week period of formal consultation which follows submission to Cornwall Council.
