Heamoor is one of the communities covered by the Penzance Neighbourhood Plan (PZNP). The PZNP is being written now. There will be a public consultation on it in late Spring 2019. Then residents will be able to vote on it in a referendum.

It’s a community plan. That means YOUR VIEWS COUNT – especially, your views about Heamoor.

Your responses will not be binned. They will be studied carefully and will form part of the evidence base for the PZNP.

The questions below reflect issues raised by Heamoor residents in past consultations with Cornwall Council, at recent public meetings in the village, and at PZNP drop-in-sessions/public meetings held in November 2018.

We can’t use the PZNP to change Cornwall Council strategic policies or site allocations, but we can use it to set out our vision for the place where we live.
