Neighbourhood Planning

Planning Awards 2017

We are thrilled to announce that the St Ives Neighbourhood Plan was recently announced as the winner at the Planning Awards 2017 for the best Neighbourhood Plan.

Through Planning Aid, Situ8 worked with them on a number of occasions and held workshops to aide them with developing a professional plan which turned their aspirations into policies.

A quote within the NDP reads "Planning Aid helped particularly to transform evidence and aspiration into policy”.  

Cornerstone Barristers very neatly summarised the event by saying, "The Awards celebrate projects which are shown to have significantly benefited communities across areas such as urban design, economic development, housing or regeneration. This truly innovative plan was devised by the St Ives Town Council, supported by Cornwall Council, to address the important needs of the local housing market. The plan contained policies to prevent new market housing being used for second and holiday homes."

Well done St Ives, a fantastic achievement!
