Anyone wishing to have their say on the future development of Kerrier will have their last chance this month as the district's Local Plan enters its final consultation stage.

The Kerrier District Local Plan sets out the council's development proposals and policy guidance to 2011.

During September and October, anyone wishing to make comments about the proposals contained in the local plan will have a chance to do so before a public local inquiry is arranged, a process which will ultimately result in the District Local Plan being formally adopted.

Cabinet member with portfolio responsibility for strategic land use at Kerrier, Mike Clayton, said: "The Kerrier District Local Plan is of huge significance to the people of Kerrier and I urge as many of you as possible to take this opportunity to view its proposals and make your views known on the changes to the plan during this final consultation stage. This document represents the blueprint for development in Kerrier over the next ten years and will have an impact on all of us so it is vital that we get it right."

Chief planning and development officer Stephen Bott said: "This really is the last time people will have the opportunity to suggest changes to the plan."

Reference copies of the Kerrier District Local Plan will go on public deposit at the district council offices in Dolcoath Avenue, Camborne, from September 12 to October 25. The plan can also be seen at the Kerrier offices, The Willows, Helston, and in public libraries at Camborne, Redruth, Helston, Falmouth and Penryn.

The district includes the Camborne and Redruth urban area, Helston, the Lizard Peninsula and Helford River Estuary.
