Our Future is in Our Hands!
The Dobwalls and Trewidland Neighbourhood Development Plan is an opportunity for everyone in the parish to take part in developing a vision for the future of the Parish and set objectives, strategy and policies. The Neighbourhood Plan is specific to the Dobwalls and Trewidland Parish.
By developing a neighbourhood plan we can work together to decide what our priorities are and tackle challenges so that the needs of the community are met without harming our options for the future.
Where we are!
Good News!The first draft of the Dobwalls and Trewidland Neighbourhood Plan document, complete with Policies, was submitted to Cornwall Council for Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) appraisal in February 2020. We had confirmation on the 28th February from Cornwall Council that we would not need to submit for a full SEA.
A copy of this draft version of the NDP is available here:
One of the key documents for the NDP is the Landscape Character Statement which is close to completion after a number of reviews.
A DRAFT copy of this document is available here:
Dobwalls and Trewidland Landscape Character Statement September 2020
Coming Soon!The Dobwalls and Trewidland Steering group is now working towards the Regulation 4 Pre Submission Public Consultation on the draft plan, which, because of COVID 19 restrictions will need to be carried out without public events. This will give a period of six weeks for local people to look at the full contents of the pre submission draft NDP online, and to give their responses and suggestions. However we hope that the Summary leaflet and questionnaire will be sent out to the all local householder on the electoral role in the near future.

The Neighbourhood Plan is made by local people, so everyone can get involved in different ways such as supporting and taking part in exhibitions and surveys, spreading the word and commenting on the draft plan. To find out more, have a look at our Getting Involved page.
