Neighbourhood Plan Online

The scale and mix of uses of development and investment in services and facilities should be based on the role and function of places. New development up to 2030 will be accommodated in accordance with the following hierarchy:

1. Delivery of housing, community, cultural, leisure, retail, utility and employment provision will be managed through a Site Allocations DPD or Neighbourhood Plans for the following locations:

• Bodmin;

• Bude with Stratton, Flexbury and Poughill;

• Callington;

• Camborne with Pool, Illogan and Redruth;

• Camelford;

• Falmouth with Penryn;

• Hayle;

• Helston;

• Launceston;

• Liskeard;

• Newquay with Quintrell Downs;

• Penzance with Newlyn, Heamoor, Gulval and Longrock;

• Saltash;

• St Austell;

• St Ives with Carbis Bay;

• Torpoint; • Truro with Threemilestone; and

• Wadebridge.

Development at or well related to these named towns will provide an appropriate level of affordable housing in accordance with the requirements of Policy 8.

2. The provision of ecocommunities at West Carclaze/ Baal and Par Docks with an indicative overall scale of about 1,500 and 500 dwellings respectively. The final scale and capacity of these proposals should be confirmed through the Site Allocations Plan. The proposals should be led by a masterplan and design code that will set out the framework for the development, and reflect the aspiration for environmental quality, including the delivery of all of the following alongside the other policies of this Plan:

• 30% affordable housing and 5% self and/or custom build housing;

• Improved access to public transport and non-car travel modes. And for the West Carclaze /Baal sites:

• Provision of employment space, Carluddon technology park and space for further economic growth;

• The provision of a new local centre to include facilities for health, neighbourhood shopping, community facilities and a new primary school;

• Strategic scale open space with public access and trails linking into existing networks as part of green infrastructure improvements;

• The retention of the Sky Tip and other distinctive landscape features as part of the green infrastructure of the site

• Demonstrate high levels of energy efficiency in the fabric of buildings on the site

• Strategic Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems to reduce flood risk on and beyond the site;

• Meeting all of the regulated energy requirements of the development from renewable and low carbon sources on or near to the site;

• Provision of low carbon heat via a heat network with consideration given to sourcing that heat from geothermal resources within the vicinity of the site; and

• Improved access to public transport and non-car travel modes. The site for the eco-communities will be identified through the Site Allocations DPD.

3. Other than at the main towns identified in this Policy, housing and employment growth will be delivered for the remainder of the Community Network Area housing requirement through:

• identification of sites where required through Neighbourhood Plans;

• rounding off of settlements and development of previously developed land within or immediately adjoining that settlement of a scale appropriate to its size and role;

• infill schemes that fill a small gap in an otherwise continuous built frontage and do not physically extend the settlement into the open countryside. Proposals should consider the significance or importance that large gaps can make to the setting of settlements and ensure that this would not be diminished;

• rural exception sites under Policy 9

4. Within the AONB or its setting, development will be supported where it is in accordance with the other policies of this Plan and can demonstrate that it conserves and enhances the landscape character and natural beauty of the AONB.
