Local people have been given the opportunity to shape the future of their town after St Blazey was chosen as front runner in the Neighbourhood planning programme.

The government is supporting communities under the programme with each front runner receiving grant funding towards their project. Cornwall Council has the grant and are providing the neighbourhood planning steering group with officer support.

The programme comes after new planning powers were introduced through the localism act in 2011.

We have rejuvenated our Neighbourhood Plan and we would love your input.

A neighbourhood survey was delivered to each and every house in the designated area during the course of the autumn 2017. The results have now been analysed and can be seen on the SURVEY RESULTS page.

We have added the policy formation documents, emerging policy and comments received from workshops below. Click the document name to open. We would love your comments.


Residents of St Blazey, through the Town Council, can produce a plan for the development of the area which all future planning applications will have to be in line with.

The neighbourhood plan will bring people together and allow them to say what they would like to see in the community and where they would like to see it, for example; do we need another supermarket? Where should it go?

The St Blaise Neighbourhood Plan will cover the whole St Blaise Parish click here for map. For more information on Neighbourhood planning visit http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=31540
