Neighbourhood Plan Referendum Postponed

Owing to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, as the May Elections have been postponed, the referendum to approve our Neighbourhood Plan has also been postponed.

In a statement issued by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government on 7th April 2020, the Government appreciates that this postponement “will be frustrating for communities that have dedicated significant time and effort to the neighbourhood planning process and naturally want their plans to come into force as soon as possible. With this in mind, they have updated current planning guidance to set out that neighbourhood plans awaiting referendums can be given significant weight in decision-making.”

When the referendum is eventually rescheduled, we hope you will

Vote to support the Plan.
