People living in and around St Keverne and Coverack are being urged to get involved in creating a new document that could help prevent unwanted planning developments.

The parish council is setting up a group to write a neighbourhood plan, but it needs input from the community.

Anyone in the parish can take part, including the coastal areas such as Porthallow and Porthoustock, and the more rural hamlets such as Traboe.

The document will look at what people want to see happen in the parish over the coming years - and what they don't want.

Once accepted, Cornwall Council will refer to the document when deciding on planning applications and issues such as housing, roads and facilities.

Before that, a whole parish vote must be held, with a majority needing to support the plan.

A meeting will be held at St Keverne Methodist Church on Thursday, July 26 at 7pm for people to find out more.
