For your information . . .

A Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is a community-led framework for guiding the future development, regeneration and conservation of an area. It is about the use and development of land and contains our vision, objectives, planning policies, proposals for improving the area and/or providing new facilities and protecting the landscape. In 2015 Menheniot Parish Council began the process of creating a Neighbourhood Plan with a number of public consultations and surveys that were completed between 2015 and 2021. This plan relates to planning decisions made within Menheniot Parish.

Menheniot Boundary Review: decision made to postpone

The parish council’s response

Menheniot councillors welcome Liskeard’s decision to withdraw the amendment and for the decision to be postponed. However, they are aware that the original proposal has not yet been withdrawn, and so they will be keeping a watching brief on the situation as it develops.
