Neighbourhood Plan Draft Presentation
The St Breock Parish Council is arranging for a display of the above neighbourhood plan to be held at the Paddock Room at Hawksfield on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th February between 7pm and 9pm on both days.
This is the 'draft' document consisting of 94 pages and it is going to be on display so that the local community have a chance to read it and send back their comments to the plans 'steering committee ' This is the only public display that will be undertaken locally. The deadline for the return of the residents comments is the 17th February, It is entirely up to the community as to whether or not they wish to attend the Hawksfield evenings but this is the only opportunity they will have to see the document displayed and to have their say. I understand that the next document that will be produced will be the actual Neighbourhood Plan which will then go out for ' public ' consultation.
Their are 'hard copies ' of the document available at Wadebridge library and the Town Hall for the public to read. The Parish Council are putting a notice in the local paper to advertise the two evenings at Hawksfield so that the local community within the three parishes involved in the 'plan' have the opportunity to come along and see it in a more open format.

EGSLOHAYLE, ST BREOCK & WADEBRIDGE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
St Breock Parish Council made the decision in 2013 to join forces with two neighbouring councils in the production of a Neighbourhood Plan for the area, its objective to allow local people the opportunity to influence future development within the area over the next twenty years.
This initiative arises from the government’s localism agenda but the freedom of local communities is limited by having to accommodate government targets concerning new housing development. So – whether we like it or not – the Plan’s starting point is a recognition of the need for an additional 1,000 new dwellings within the Plan area over the next twenty years.
Some of this allocation has already been built; an example is the Linden Homes development on West Hill in Wadebridge and which, you may be surprised to learn, is within St Breock parish’s boundaries. It means that St Breock parish has already virtually fulfilled its share of the dwellings increase. As a result, there is no threat of major housing development within the Parish other than, possibly, in land leading up to Dunveth Business Park, near the Tesco store.
The Neighbourhood Plan team’s biggest task, to date, has been the production of an Evidence Report and which covers a host of important development-related topics. Chapter topics include Housing, the Natural Environment, Renewable Energy, the Local Economy and Transport.
The full report – and further background information - can be found on www.wadebridgeareanhp.org
For the purposes of St Breock web site we have attached a document that summarises the many key findings arising from the Evidence Report. A workshop took place on 22nd July that began the process of distilling these findings – as well as public feedback from April’s consultation event in Wadebridge - into a draft plan to be presented to the public in the Autumn.
We have also attached a considered response by St Breock PC to the Evidence Report. Please use our comments section if you have any observations about the Plan or wish to become involved in the process.
