A Neighbourhood Plan for Camborne? Public Meeting 29th October

Neighbourhood Plan

Camborne Town Council invites those who live and work in Camborne Parish to a public meeting to discuss the development of a Neighbourhood Plan.

A cross party group of Camborne Town Councillors have set up a working party to start the process of a Neighbourhood Development Plan for Camborne. The area this plan would cover includes; Camborne Town, the villages of Tuckingmill, Barriper, Beacon, Bolenowe, Brea, Kehelland, Penponds and Troon.

The public meeting is set to take place at 7pm on Tuesday 29th October at Camborne Wesley Methodist Church, Chapel Street, Camborne TR14 8EG.

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together all parts of the community to discuss a plan for Camborne. Councillors are keen to ensure this is a community led plan and stress that this process cannot take place without engagement from the public.

The process of neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools to local people to influence types of development to meet their community’s needs. Neighbourhood planning allows communities to influence decisions where new homes, shops and offices are to be built. It allows a say on what new buildings look like and what infrastructure should be provided and outlines the ambition of the neighbourhood to ensure it is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.

Residents and those who work in the area are urged to attend the meeting to influence a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and future growth of Camborne.
