Porthleven Neighbourhood Development Plan

Porthleven NDP is at Examination. The independent examiner is Deborah McCann.

Porthleven Parish Council have submitted their Neighbourhood Plan to Cornwall Council. Cornwall Council have appointed an independent examiner. This is for the designated Neighbourhood Development Plan Area. Under the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended). 

We will be doing our best to gain the absolute maximum possible percentage of affordable homes on any site. We will also do our utmost to ensure that the maximum number of those affordable homes are for affordable rent. The design and space of each home on any site will need to conform to policy and be of the highest standard, we should expect and accept nothing less. 

Parking was highlighted as a huge problem within Porthleven and all new homes or other use sites would be required to provide sufficient parking to conform with parking standards. This would not solve existing problems but would prevent any new development from causing more problems with parking. 

In line with your comments and environmental and ecological policies we will facilitate delivery by Developers of all new builds to provide energy saving features and not to cause environmental damage. 

The Penrose footpath project received much support and we will certainly try to secure those improvements through developers’ contributions. Open spaces and areas of play for our children and youth are also on the list to be improved through contributions monies. 

There are some areas which the Neighbourhood Plan cannot make policies on but may be able to influence in the future once the Plan has been examined and passed at referendum, these areas include health and education provision. The Neighbourhood Plan team accept that these areas are of great concern to our community and will look for ways that can positively improve those facilities. 

Thank you for your continued support.
