St Ives Area Neighbourhood Development Plan Submission Draft
Basic Conditions Statement
Sustainability Appraisal Submission Version
During the process of consultation and drawing up St Ives Area NDP, potential projects were also identified that could contribute to the sustainable development of the area over the next 15 years. These were written into the St Ives Area Action Plan. The Action Plan projects are suggestions at this stage and have not been through a formal approval process at St Ives Town Council.

Neighbourhood Plans are a powerful tool for shaping the development and growth of our local area – St Ives, Carbis Bay, Lelant and Halsetown.
A Neighbourhood Plan sets out the community’s views on the development and use of land. This includes setting policies on where development should go, how development is designed or, to give permission for certain types of development.
Unlike a Town Plan of the past, a Neighbourhood Plan becomes a legal part of the planning system. Once a plan is made, and it has been adopted by Cornwall Council, it becomes a part of Cornwall Council’s Local Plan for the area and must be considered in the approval of planning applications.
Topic Groups are already actively working to pull together information from previous area plans. More information on all aspects of our neighbourhood plan can be found on this website.
