Parish Plan

Welcome to the Marazion and District Community Plan

For the town of Marazion, and the parishes of St Hilary, Ludgvan, Perranuthnoe, and St Michaels’ Mount.

This community strategic plan is the work of the Marazion and District Forum. We have prepared it because we care about our community: about the town and parishes, the people who live and work here, and the quality and beauty of our coastal and countryside environment. Researching and writing the plan represents a lot of work on the part of many members of the community, particularly those who completed our survey, those who attended our Prioritisation Day in February, and of course those who took part in our themed discussion groups. This plan responds to the issues you raised; I hope you will participate in its delivery.

To those readers who represent the community at local and regional government level, and those of you representing other key agencies and organisations, this plan is significant in that it represents the concerns, issues and aspirations of the community; it is rooted in the community, being based on the findings from the extensive community survey we undertook during 2006/7, and consultations on specific topics during the summer of 2007.

The plan describes our overall vision for our community in the future, and sets out goals that will help us realise that vision. It seeks to encompass existing initiatives alongside new ideas and suggestions for how we might realise our vision.

This community strategic plan for the next 10-20 years is a very important document for the Marazion and District community, so thank you for taking the time to read it, and I hope it is of interest and relevance to you and your organisation.
