Cornwall Council has now formally ‘Designated’ the Liskeard Neighbourhood Area under the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012. Under these any Neighbourhood Plan being produced must be carried out within the Area, the extent of which must be submitted to, publicly advertised, consulted on and approved by Cornwall Council.
Cornwall Council’s Cabinet Planning Portfolio Holder Cllr Edwina Hannaford signed-off the approval on 14th April and the Designation took place on 25th April. Cornwall Council will now publicise the designation of the Neighbourhood Area in accordance with Regulation 7.
This good news is a major step forward and means that the Neighbourhood Plan team can now get seriously into the task of producing the Plan with the community of Liskeard. This starts with the community engagement activity kicking-off this month and running into June. Please make every effort to get involved and ensure your views on Liskeard’s future are heard!
