Let’s Talk Homes - Housing Survey
The homes we live in affects every aspect of our lives.
Cornwall Council are starting to review the current Housing Strategy* for Cornwall and have some further questions they want to ask of residents, stakeholders, organisations and anyone interested in housing. The answers to these will help them prepare a draft strategy that they will be more formally consulting on this winter.
Please visit the ‘Let’s Talk Homes’ https://letstalk.cornwall.gov.uk/housing-strategy and fill out the survey ‘What Challenges do we face? What should our Priorities and Objectives be?’ by 5pm Monday 8th November 2021.
The draft Housing Strategy will be formally consulted on towards the end of the year with a view that this be approved at Council in April 2022.
Plans are being made to engage with Council Members through the Overview & Scrutiny function alongside colleagues in Planning Policy, Local Transport and Economic Development to ensure that all our emerging Strategies are consistent and complimentary.
*The Housing Strategy is a strategic partnership document and describes what their priorities will be for homes over the next five years and beyond.

NDP Update and Consultation
The NDP Steering Group had a very positive meeting with members of the Parish Council last week and were able to agree some final details in the draft plan, so it is close to being ready for submission to Cornwall Council and the independent examiner.
Parish Council decided not to include Trenode Field as a Local Green Space, as Councillors felt that this designation would hinder or delay future development of the space as a community asset. They will, however, consult with parishioners about any proposals for future use of the field.
A number of ideas raised by parishioners during the consultation process are not directly relevant to the current planning brief of the NDP, and have been listed by the Steering Group in an appendix of future projects. Many of these areas are in fact already being addressed by the Parish Council, so please refer to their website for updates.
