Chacewater Neighbourhood Plan

Chacewater Neighbourhood Development Plan





After just over 18 months of hard graft by a tremendously committed, supportive and informed team of volunteers from across the community, the Final Draft of the Chacewater Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) was forwarded to Cornwall Council’s Local Planning Authority (LPA) on Friday the 16th November 2018. The latest in a long series of milestones that included a wide range of questionnaires, public consultation/engagement events and communication with many outside agencies and organisations, the feedback has been extensive but welcome and has gone a long way to informing this Final Draft.     

The last few months in particular have been quite intense for your NDP Strategy Team. Having submitted an initial Draft of our Plan in mid-July, on the 3rd August 2018 we received confirmation from Cornwall Council that the initial Draft NDP did not require a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) or Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA). This notification was used as a spring board towards Pre-submission Consultation which ran from Saturday 15th September to Saturday 27th October 2018. Going in to this period with 34 Objective policies, we emerged with 58 (the most significant being the inclusion of a completely new Objective area covering ‘The Environment – Renewable & Low Carbon Energy’) which we believe reflected the extent to which we engaged. The feedback received, together with responses given and actions taken can be found – along with details of questionnaires, monthly meetings, etc. through this portal.  

It is never too late to comment on the NDP, it will become a living and breathing document that we hope to update in line with significant change in future. So please, feel free to scrutinise our work and make contact with any one of following members of the NDP Strategy Team – we would be only too pleased to hear from you:

Mr Robin Knill: 01872 561364, 07816 773218 or

Mr Tony Roode:

Mrs Terie Chesworth:

Mr Steve Leech:

The Final Draft of the Chacewater Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan and other documents posted on this website are hopefully structured in such a way as to enable the reader to grasp why the Plan was needed in the first place. It also gives an insight on the key factors required in order to protect our Parish from any unwanted development.

Finally, an enormous thank you to all involved in bringing this Plan together to this point. Your efforts have been huge and reflects a most committed parish community who simply want the very best for this unique heritage area. Importantly, we believe we have gone some way to preparing the ground for those future generations who follow our footsteps.

Many thanks!
