For the NDP to represent the views of the whole community it is necessary that as far as practicable all members of the community have the opportunity to input to the NDP process and are kept informed of progress of the formulation of the NDP.

The pre-submission consultation phase for the draft NDP started on 10 April 2018, with consultation events planned from 20 April to 28 April in Killigarth and Polperro, and the closing date for comments and feedback was 28 May 2018.  More detail on the draft Plan page.

Notification of the pre-submission consultation phase, where to read the draft Plan and evidence base, how to provide feedback and the closing date for comments were emailed to all registered NDP contacts (or letters mailed to those without email), emailed to all local groups and organisations, to local businesses, to neighbouring parish and town councils, and to statutory and other consultation bodies.  Posters were put up around the parish, articles appeared in the Cornish Times and Cornish Guardian, and notices with links to the draft Plan on the NDP website were published on Facebook.    Reference copies of the draft Plan have been made available in a number of locations around the Parish.

During the week starting 7 November 2016 questionnaires were delivered to every local household and business. This survey is one of the most important ways for residents to make known their views on the future of the area and its results can be found on the Survey page.  From the 935 households, 260 questionnaires were completed and returned;  of 233 business questionnaires, 30 were completed and returned.

During 2016 the NDP Steering Group engaged with more than 30 local groups and organisations in the parish, to learn about the issues that are most important to these elements of the community through a series of meetings and discussions, including a survey of Polperro Primary School students and an interactive mapping session with the Polperro Brownies and Guides
