Mylor Parish Councillors have voted to submit the Neighbourhood Development Plan to Cornwall Council for examination. The vote was held at an Extraordinary General Meeting on Zoom on 29 April, attended by the full Parish Council and members of the Steering Group, and observed by members of the public.
Standing orders were suspended so that members of the public could make statements of support for the Plan, and the Parish Council and Steering Group were thanked for their hard work and commitment in getting the Plan ready. Seven councillors voted to submit the Plan, with one abstention.
On behalf of the Steering Group, Chair Jane Moss said: ‘This is an important moment and absolutely great news for the Parish. Throughout the consultation parishioners have given the same clear messages: they want more affordable homes, no more open market development, and protection for the AONB. The Plan provides all of that and more, and is an expression of how local people see their communities in the years to come. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to achieve this, and to the Parish Council for supporting it emphatically with this vote. This is their legacy and the in-coming new Parish Council will have a solid platform on which to build.’
The Plan will now be prepared for the examiner, with some final small amendments specified by MPC and a thorough proof read before it is sent to Cornwall Council.
We will provide updates as the Plan progresses.
