“Following the 6 week consultation period, the representations will be collated and sent for independent examination. You may also request to be notified of the local planning authority’s decision under Regulation 19 (the outcome of the independent examination of the plan.) If the Examiner believes that the Neighbourhood Plan meets all of its requirements a Referendum will take place which will allow residents to decide whether the Neighbourhood Plan should be used by the Council to determine planning applications in the Antony, Maker with Rame, Millbrook, Sheviock and St John Parish areas”

Residents of the Rame Peninsula are being invited to give opinions about their area’s future planning, through a series of public meetings
Work to create the “Rame Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan” is reaching its conclusion, with draft policies being written that reflect the community’s views.
The area has already had several rounds of public consultations, surveys and events, which have now been assessed, and collated, to create new policy areas.
The public meetings, which will start 13th October 2014, will visit every local parish twice, to ensure that all members of the community who wish to get involved in the neighbourhood plan consultation can do so.
This will be a further chance for residents to provide their opinions on specific policy themes, such as housing, growth, business and conservation, before the “Rame Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan” which will outline the future shape of the area will be finalized.
Cornwall Councillor George Trubody says that there is a key reason for this further consultation work:
“We’ve had a brilliant response from the community, with hundreds of replies and opinions from the whole age range, 16-99, and from every corner of the Peninsula. What we need now is a final clarification on some of the more controversial or unclear points. We know that residents in this area really care about the Neighbourhood Plan, so we’re going all out to gather those opinions and preferences over the month of October.”
The work is being supported by The Peninsula Trust and the meetings will also include their news about new activities in the area. 14 public meetings have been arranged in seven locations: Antony, Cawsand, Crafthole, Freathy, Millbrook, St. John and Wilcove.
Simon Ryan, General Manager for the Trust, explained: “This Plan really matters, so we thought it would be a good idea to get out to all the larger villages and to run daytime sessions for older people who don’t get out so much at night, plus evening events for those getting home from work. This way we hope to include everybody that wants to express their opinion.”
