Buntingford Community Area Neighbourhood Plan Accepted By The Public

Posted: Fri, 24 Mar 2017 16:50 by Clerk's Office

After years of hard work and several scrutiny processes, the Neighbourhood Plan has been accepted by the community at referendum. The results of the Referendum held on the 23rd March 2017 are as follows:

The turnout was 22.30% of the Community Area Electorate.

There were 1351 Ballot Papers issued.

There were 1268 (94%) votes in favour of a Yes

There were 82 (6%) votes in favour of a No.

It was declared that more than half of those voting had voted in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan which now becomes an official planning document to be used by East Herts Council when deciding planning applications.

A massive thank you to the NP Forum for their years of hard work, and thanks to all those who voted on referendum day. To view the plan and a brief history on the process of creating it, click here.
