Lots of great ideas came out of the community participation in the Neighbourhood Plan surveys, Stakeholder Group meetings and the community Working Groups during the preparation of the Falmouth NDP.
These were drawn together in the Consultation Draft NDP, published in December 2016. Lots more comment was received during the 8 weeks following, on the basis of which the NDP was redrafted to make it even more community focused. A revised ‘submission’ version of the NDP was ready in March 2018. This was sent to Cornwall Council for Strategic Environmental Assessment Screening in April 2018.
Further detailed changes were made to the NDP following comments made by Natural England and Historic England in the screening process. These involved improving the heritage and habitats impact assessments material and amending policies and text where necessary to ensure that there was no significant harmful environmental effects from the NDP.
The revised version of the NDP was then submitted to Cornwall Council on 5th July 2019.
