Cornwall’s Local Plan has been submitted to Government so, if passed, planning decisions will be judged according to this document rather than the Nation Planning Policy Framework being so influential. To have greater influence on how local areas develop in future, communities within Cornwall can use the Localism act to develop neighbourhood plans. See Neighbourhood Planning | My Community Rights for details of how to develop these but note that Town and Parish Councils have to lead the process NOT Cornwall Council.
Cornwall Council submitted the Cornwall Local Plan: Strategic Policies to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government on 9th February 2015 for independent examination. The Planning Inspectorate has appointed Mr Simon Emerson BSc DipTP MRTPI to conduct the examination.
