'Yes' vote at referendum

On 4th May 2017, voters in Salford Priors chose to say 'yes' to the Neighbourhood Plan - that it should become part of the District Council's development plan and be used to assist in determining planning applications in the parish.

  • 86.8% of those voting said 'Yes'
  • 388 people votes Yes and 13.2% (59 people) voted No
  • There was a 39.1% turnout.

Plan to proceed to referendum

The Salford Seven Neighbourhood Plan was independently examined in Summer 2016 and the examiner recommended that, subject to some modifications, the plan should proceed to referendum. The District Council agreed with the examiner's report and voted to progress the plan to referendum at the Cabinet meeting on 13 February 2017 .


Following completion of the formal submission consultation on the draft neighbourhood development plan, the plan - together with the associated consultation documents and schedule of responses - was sent to an Independent Examiner on 14 July 2016.
