Plan to Proceed to Referendum

The Snitterfield Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) was independently examined during April and May 2017. The examiner concluded that the NDP would meet the legal requirements set out in the Localism Act 2011, including meeting the Basic Conditions, subject to some modifications.

Our cabinet voted on 15 January 2018 to proceed to referendum with the NDP, as amended by the modifications that are set out in the decision statement below:

Referendum details

The question to be asked in the referendum will be as follows:
