Plan to proceed to referendum

The District Council agreed with the examiner's report and voted at Cabinet on 18 January 2016 to progress the plan to referendum.


Following completion of the formal submission consultation on the draft neighbourhood development plan, the plan - together with the associated consultation documents, schedule of responses and list of evidence base documents - was sent to an independent examiner on 21 August 2015.
