Our Future is in Our Hands!
The Dobwalls and Trewidland Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) 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!
From the 8th of January 2021 the Dobwalls and Trewidland Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) enters the Regulation 14 stage (Pre-Submission Consultation) of the process. This is the stage which allows the residents and key stakeholders of the Parish to make comments about the plan prior to it being formally submitted to Cornwall Council.
A copy of the Regulation 14 NDP is available here:
Sadly. due to the continuing COVID 19 restrictions this public consultation is to be carried out without any public events. So, from the 8th of January 2021 all local householders on the electoral roll within the Dobwalls and Trewidland parish will receive a Newsletter via the postal system. The Newsletter provides a summary of the NDP and policies, a short questionnaire and the options available for returning a completed questionnaire to the Steering Group.
An online version of the Newsletter is available here
The consultation period is open for 6 weeks and will end on the 22nd of February 2021. From the returned questionnaires recieved further amendments may be made to the NDP to allow the plan to move forward to the Regulation 15 stage. This is the stage where the plan is formally submitted to Cornwall Council. The intention is to submit the NDP to Cornwall Council in March 2021.
One of the key documents for the NDP is the Landscape Character Statement and a copy of the Regulation 14 version can be found following the link below:Dobwalls and Trewidland Landscape Character Statement 07 January 2021
