Community Facilities and Green Infrastructure

(Formerly known as Community Facilities and Open Space)

The Community Facilities group (Tracey Kitto, Ailsa Tween and Sandy Simmons) set up in 2017 gathered a range of information related to issues raised as particularly significant in the initial NDP Questionnaire responses in April 2017.

The Community Facilities Evidence Base Report gathers this information together.  It covers key National and Local Planning policies and guidance, and draws together all relevant information available on this topic area and identified issues that emerged from the research e.g.

  • What do we provide in our local areas for children, working families and  older people?
  • How can we protect and improve our enjoyment of these facilities?
  • How can we best safeguard these facilities for the future?
  • What are the key threats, priorities and objectives?

These issues then became the basis for the April 2018 Household Survey and Consultation events (see links to results below), and helped the steering group to identify Planning objectives for the NDP exhibited at the September 2019 Local Policy Public Consultation events.  These events led to the formation of a Greenspace Strategy group (Davina Finch, Lorna Perrin, Sandy Simmons and Mhairi Mackie) who pursued the development of this strategy with Stuart Wallace (Cornwall Council).  The results of these public consultations are also included in the report, and form the basis of the NDP draft Plan Policies (Dec 20); the Reg14 Pre-Submission Consultation (Jan 2021) and the Reg15 Full Submission document.
