To produce a neighbourhood plan for St Erth, five objectives have been identified and there are now groups set up and working to produce policies around each one (NB. the two housing groups, for objectives 1 and 2, are holding joint meetings). Representatives from each group sit on the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. The five objectives are:
OBJECTIVE 1: Housing Sites
To identify appropriate sites for future housing, giving particular weight to the traffic implications, given constraints arising from the parish’s narrow roads, old bridge, on-street parking and lack of public transport.
For more information about objective 1 and the group, contact Councillor Mick Hanley
OBJECTIVE 2: Housing Types and Tenures
To understand, plan and provide for locally generated housing needs, by managing development and encouraging a mix of sustainable housing types and tenures that will help residents remain within the area through different life stages.
For more information about objective 2 and the group, contact Councillor Ted Taylor
OBJECTIVE 3: Open Spaces
To protect and enhance important areas of local green space (such as the riverbank and allotments) which are highly valued and much used by local people.
For more information about objective 3 and the group, contact Councillor Winnie Chappell
OBJECTIVE 4: Community Buildings and Facilities
To retain buildings with a community focus (such as the ‘School Room’) which are a significant asset underpinning the vitality of the local community.
For more information about objective 4 and the group, contact Councillor Cheryl MacLeod
OBJECTIVE 5: Economic Development
To ensure that any large scale, commercial and/or industrial developments (individually or cumulatively) are sympathetically sited and do not impact significantly on landscape character.
