NDP Referendum – It’s A Yes!

Jul 29, 2022 | Neighbourhood Plan News, News

The referendum on Thursday 28 July 2022 showed strong support for the Padstow Parish Neighbourhood Plan (NDP) with 90.1% (453 people) voting “Yes” and 9.7% (49 people) voting “No”.

This means that Cornwall Council will now be using the NDP to help when deciding on planning applications.

It provides important additional criteria for a development to be accepted by Cornwall Council Planners, better reflecting the wishes of residents.

The official declaration notice of the result can be downloaded here: Declaration of Result of Poll – Padstow NPR and the final NDP plan can be downloaded by clicking on this link.

Of the result Councillor WatsonSmyth (NDP Steering Group Chairman) and Councillor O’Keefe (Chairman of Padstow Town Council) have said, “The NDP Steering Group and the Town Council are grateful for the support shown at the referendum for the Padstow Parish Neighbourhood Plan.  The Plan is the result of an extensive and inclusive process of community engagement and consultation and this result is a fantastic achievement for our Parish.  Thanks must go to all the NDP volunteers who have helped and supported this process over the years, sadly some of whom are no longer with us, and also to our fellow Town Councillors past and present for their part in this success.   Special thanks go to our community Consultant, Paul Weston for his unwavering support, impartial advice and objective analysis throughout”.
