Dobwalls and Trewidland Neighbourhood Development Plan


The Housing topic group, set up in 2017 (John Collis, Hugh Francis, Michael Taylor, Phillip Blee and John Dunn) gathered a range of information related to issues as particularly significant in the initial NDP Questionnaire responses in April 2017.

The Housing 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 research. (This included a Housing Needs Survey carried out by Cornwall Council officers in the spring of 2018) e.g.

Historical main road Dobwalls

These issues then became the basis for the April 2018 Household Survey and Consultation events.

This helped the steering group to identify Planning objectives for the NDP exhibited at the September 2019 Local Policy Public Consultation events.  The results of these public consultations are also included in the report, and form the basis of the NDP draft Plan Policies (Dec 2020); the Reg14 Pre-Submission consultation (Jan 2021) and the Reg15 Submission Document.
