Budock Parish Council formally submitted their Neighbourhood Plan to Cornwall Council on 15 April 2020 for their designated Neighbourhood Development Plan Area, in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended).

Cornwall Council consulted residents and other interested stakeholders on the plan for the Budock Parish area. Consultation ran between Thursday 11 June until 3 September 2020 for an extended twelve-week period. The statutory consultation period was adapted due to the national Covid-19 crisis taking into consideration the latest Planning Guidance from The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The plan proposal included a copy of a map and statement which identifies the area to which the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan relates; a consultation statement; the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan, and a statement explaining how the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan meets the requirements of paragraph 8 of Schedule 4B to the 1990 Act (the Basic Conditions Statement).
