The Cornwall LIP is the Council’s first attempt to define and develop priorities for spatial investment. The LIP sets out Cornwall Council’s investment priorities for development required to deliver the Council’s emerging priorities and ambitions as set out in Future Cornwall (the Councils Sustainable Community Strategy). It is an important vehicle for bringing together projects from a range of programmes. Primarily, the focus in this initial LIP is on the period 2010-2015, for projects which support housing for local communities, job growth, transport and green infrastructure.

The Cornwall LIP will be a working and evolving document designed to maintain and build momentum for investment and delivery. An early review of the LIP is already underway. As a unitary authority, Cornwall Council is developing its structures, partnerships, key strategies and policies; which as they emerge will shape the Local Investment Plan, including the development of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership. Key to this will be the preparation of Cornwall Council’s first core strategy which will set the strategic planning framework.
