What is Sustainable Development?

Sustainable development means making sure we grow and develop in a way that’s safe and fair for future generations.

To get the best long-term outcome for Falmouth, our Neighbourhood Plan should meet the needs of our community in a way that supports sustainable development.

The guiding principles of sustainable development that our Neighbourhood Plan should follow are:
• Live within the planet’s environmental limits – we’ll protect and enhance our natural and man-made environment, and respond to climate change.
• Ensure a strong, healthy and just society – we’ll meet present and future needs for the housing, work and services that support the wellbeing of all our community.
• Achieve a sustainable economy – we’ll support actions that build prosperity for all and use resources wisely.
• Promote good governance – we’ll make sure that we are all
involved in creating the Falmouth Neighbourhood Plan
