Callington Town Council have put out a ‘call for land’ as part of the emerging Callington & Kelly Bray Neighbourhood Plan following the appointment of new Consultants for the project.
The call has come following a meeting with Clifton Emery Design and LRM Planning. They have been employed by the Council to bring forward the Plan which will consider areas for new homes and employment spaces to meet future needs and identify the infrastructure and other improvements that will help the area over the next twenty years.
As part of this process they will be looking at areas that could be developed to meet the requirements of the Cornwall Local Plan, which was approved by the Government in November 2016 and targeted 1,000 homes for the Caradon Community Network centred around Callington.
“The Neighbourhood Plan is an opportunity for local people to help shape the future of the area and the community’s views need to be at the heart of the project. The focus of the work to begin is understanding the important issues for local people and finding out how they would like Callington and Kelly Bray to develop over the coming years” said Helen Dowdall, Clerk to the Town Council who has set up a Steering Group for the Plan production.
She added, “in order to help us identify the best sites for future development we are calling on landowners in the area to submit details of any sites now that they might think would be suitable for housing, employment or community use in the future. This will give us the best possible selection to choose from to meet the requirements of the Local Plan.”
Details of any sites need to be submitted using the form below, it can be downloaded, completed and returned by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is also available in hard copy. Closing date for the submissions is Friday 7th September 2018.
The steering group will be holding a consultation on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th July at Callington Town Hall to give the public an opportunity to further engage in the formation of the plan following the initial survey. The event will take place from 2.00pm to 6.00pm on Friday and 10.00am until 2.00pm on Saturday. Following the consultation there will be a week-long exhibition in the Town Hall from Monday 30th July.
