Cornwall Local Plan – Strategic Policies.

Cornwall Council is asking residents to help shape the future of Cornwall for the next 20 years.

The Cornwall Local Plan sets out the Council’s aims and planning policies for new housing, employment, retail, the environment, leisure, community facilities, essential public services and infrastructure up to 2030.

Consultation on the Cornwall Local Plan runs from 11 March to 22 April 2013.

Residents can give their views in several ways:

  • On the Cornwall Local Plan pages of the Cornwall Council website where they can put comments online.
  • Request copies of the documents and feedback forms to be posted out from the Local Plan Team; telephone: 01872 224283; e-mail:
  • Viewing the documents in Cornwall Council libraries and one stop shops and contacting us with your comments by phone (01872 224283) or online via a link on the Cornwall Local Plan web page.


Following this consultation, the new Council created after the election in May 2013 will then have to decide whether to submit the plan to the Secretary of State for examination by an independent inspector.


Members decided that the target for overall housing numbers to be included in the Cornwall Local Plan should be set at 42,250 to be delivered over the next 20 years.  However the Plan is not just about housing important though it is and I urge all residents to put forward their views on the draft.”
