8/2/2019 – Polperro Conservation Area Appraisal
The recently updated Polperro Conservation Area Appraisal has now been approved by Cornwall Council – this revision has allowed some factual updating and a review of the management and policy elements of the Appraisal, with increased relevance to more recent national and Cornwall-wide policies, strategies, needs and resources. The original Polperro Conservation Area Appraisal was adopted in 2003 and has been used as a material consideration in determining planning applications since then.

21/9/2018 – Independent Examination

The Regulation 16 consultation phase for the draft Polperro & Lansallos Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan has been successfully completed and the draft NDP has now been submitted for independent examination by Barbara Maksymiw.

We’ve been advised of progress through Cornwall Council’s inspection and ratification procedures: the draft Plan is now considered to be legally compliant which already gives it a little more weight in ongoing planning decisions.

In parallel Cornwall Council will arrange for a few hard copies to be displayed locally in the next week or so in Polperro Post Office and in the Museum Tearooms.
