What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
The Town Council believes that it is important for the future of Lostwithiel that we prepare what is known as a 'Neighbourhood Development Plan'. At the Town Councilís request Cornwall Council have designated Lostwithiel a 'Neighbourhood Area' in accordance with the law introduced in 2012.
The Neighbourhood Plan has to be in 'general conformity' with National & Local Planning Policies. Links to the main documents are listed below:-
