Policy: I1 – Foot and cyclepaths
Proposals to provide new, or to retain or enhance existing, foot and cycle paths will be supported. New development proposals should incorporate foot and cycle access to nearby facilities and to connect with other parts of town. Major developments must have more than one point of pedestrian or cycle access and must demonstrate connectivity has been implemented in the masterplan.
Policy: I2 – Allotments
Development on existing allotment sites (as identified on Map I) will not be supported unless replacement facilities of the same or greater standard are provided at a suitable accessible location.
The Neighbourhood Plan will support proposals for new allotments either within, adjoining or in close proximity to the built up area boundary of Newquay, provided the land can be accessed and can accommodate adequate off-street car parking.
New developments of more than [50 / 100] homes are encouraged to consider the provision of allotment space as part of their landscaping proposals.
Policy: I3 – Open Spaces, Leisure Facilities, Amenity Space & Green Infrastructure
Map Ia identifies leisure sites and open spaces which are of value to the community. Development which would remove or reduce the recreational value of these sites will not be permitted unless alternative facilities of the same or greater recreational value are first provided at an acceptable alternative location.
Proposals for development that is ancillary to the existing recreational use and that would enhance the community facilities and amenities will be supported.
Policy: I4 – Town centre car parks
Development on these publicly owned town centre car parks
• St George’s Road
• The Manor
• Mount Wise
will not be permitted unless the same volume of public car parking is provided on the existing site or within the town centre (as defined in Map D3) as part of the proposal, on terms that are the same or better as the existing car park.
Development on the following car parks which are valued for their contribution to open space will not be supported.
• Atlantic Road
• Towan Headland
• Dane Road
• Fore Street
• Watergate Bay
Development on other urban car parks will be supported where it can be demonstrated that there is no significant demand for parking on that site, or where alternative parking can be provided on an acceptable alternative site in advance of the removal of any parking from town centre locations.
