Protecting our coast and countrside

More than 150 people came to the Memorial Hall in Portscatho on the evening of 11th October 2011 to hear and take part in a public discussion about how the community can influence planning policy under the government's proposals for a new National Planning Policy Framework.
Speakers from the fields of national and local politics, Cornwall planning and conservation gave their views on how these proposals would affect the future decision making process and the role that local communities could have in shaping future policy.
Members of the audience then had an opportunity to put questions to the speaker panel on points of concern or need for clarification.

One of the key issues emerging is the opportunity to develop a Neighbourhood Plan or Plans for the Roseland but this will require a significant level of community involvement and support.
A copy of the outline briefing notes provided by each of the speakers on their subject matter can be downloaded below.
