Consultation event to be held at Etherington’s Meeting Room on 25th January from 11am to 6pm
Links to the Proposed Settlement Boundary Map and the Online Survey are found at the bottom of this page.
The St. Agnes Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan proposes to include settlement boundaries in accordance with policy 3 of the Cornwall Local Plan.
Principally a settlement boundary marks where one policy stops and another one starts. Inside the boundary is where the market-led housing can be built.
Outside of a settlement boundary housing development is not entirely excluded. Applications would be assessed under separate planning policies such as those relating to housing in the countryside or exception sites
The Cornwall Local Plan does not show the settlement boundaries for any of our settlements, where they start or stop will be down to an interpretation of the definition on the Local Plan, unless they are agreed and approved through the Neighbourhood Development Plan.
