Penn Parish Neighbourhood Plan Consultation

The Penn Parish Neighbourhood Plan is our opportunity to say what we value about our villages and how we want them to change in the future. It tells planning authorities what we want them to consider when assessing planning applications.

The Penn Parish Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared by a working group of representatives from each of the villages and members of the Parish Council. In addition to the Neighbourhood Plan, a Design Code has also been prepared.


Before the Neighbourhood Plan and Code are finalised it is important that people living in the Parish have an opportunity to comment– there are 3 ways to do that – please see below.


In addition, this website gives some background to the plan, a summary of the proposed policies , along with a summary of the design codeThe Parish Council also commissioned some research on housing needs in the Parish and a Housing Needs Assessment has been prepared.
