CORNWALL COUNCIL CLIMATE CHANGE DEVELOPMENT PLAN CONSULTATION

 

Cornwall Council Public Consultation on the Climate Emergency Development Plan Document (DPD)

Cornwall Council are asking you to look at the draft planning Policies in the attached DPD and to let us have your views.

Climate Change Development Plan

FROM CORNWALL COUNCIL:

Cornwall Council is publishing the above document for a 6-week consultation period between 10th August and 5pm on 25th September. The DPD contains draft policies to help ensure that planning decisions fully consider and respond to climate change.

This Pre-Submission stage consultation is intended to set out the draft policies in the Climate Emergency Development Plan Document (DPD) and invite comments on the content.

We want to engage in order to understand what you think about the proposed policies, before we produce the final version of the Climate Emergency DPD. However, this will not be the only opportunity for you to have your say; we will be consulting again on the content of the DPD prior to its submission to the Secretary of State, as well as engaging with key stakeholders throughout the process.

Aspects covered by the Climate Emergency DPD include:

  • Renewable energy
  • Natural climate solutions
  • Town Centres
  • Mine water energy and deep geothermal
  • Energy and Sustainable Construction
  • Coastal Change and flood management
  • One Planet Development/Alternative living
  • Transport
  • Agriculture and Rural Sustainability

Once adopted, the Climate Emergency DPD will sit alongside the Cornwall Local Plan: Strategic Policies and other DPDs and will be used for decision making on all development proposals.
