As the UK’s population increases, so too will the need for new housing in all our cities, towns and villages. Marhamchurch Parish Council wishes to support the community to ensure that any future development should be more consistent with the overall consensus of the community than it has been in the past. To achieve this, the Parish Council has been given approval to generate an NP for our parish.

This plan has been developed by the Steering Group using the results from the Marhamchurch Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire 2021 and the grant funded services of an experienced Planning Consultant.

The plan was amended in the light of comments received about the draft version and has been submitted to Cornwall Council who will now steer the process to completion.
