Neighbourhood Plan Referendum Stage

Witton Gilbert Neighbourhood Plan (final September 2019)


What happens next?

In November of 2018 a pre submission draft was completed and submitted for inspection by an Independent Planning Inspector. In July this year the Inspectors report was issued and the plan was recommended to go forward to a referendum with some revisions, the final draft of the plan was completed and agreed with the County Council in September.

The referendum will be held on the 7th  November and polling cards will be issued to all registered voters in Witton Gilbert Parish. The Neighbourhood Plan is important to the local community as it will sit alongside the County Plan and be used to make planning decisions within the Neighbourhood area.
