Kineton Neighbourhood Plan has now been 'made'

Stratford-on-Avon District Council resolved that the Kineton Neighbourhood Development Plan was 'made' on 24 October 2016. It is now formally part of the District Council's development plan and will be used to assist in making decisions on planning applications within the plan area.

'Yes' vote at referendum

On Thursday 1 September 2016, voters in Kineton chose to say 'yes' to the Neighbourhood Plan.

  • 90.1% of those voting said 'Yes'
  • 773 people voted Yes and 9.9% (85 people) voted No
  • There was a 46.1% turnout

The Declaration of Result of Poll provides the official record of the count.

Plan to proceed to referendum

The Kineton Neighbourhood Plan was independently examined in Autumn 2015. 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 Cabinet on 20 June 2016.


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 12 October 2015.

The Inspectors report was received on 11 January 2016 (see above).
