Porthleven Neighbourhood Plan forum initial meeting

Key Achievements – May 2016

The story so far…

\nOn the 17 May 2014, a presentation was given at an open meeting introducing the Porthleven Neighbourhood Plan (PNP). This identified the possible need for Porthleven to have a neighbourhood plan and offered the chance for those gathered to ask questions.\n\nThe final act of the meeting was to decide if Porthleven needed a plan. The vote to proceed with the plan was unanimous.\n\nIt’s a credit to our team of volunteers how far we’ve come in two years. A team of volunteers who are passionate about and committed to where we live has achieved an amazing amount of work.\n\n \n
