Referendum Result

86.6% of those who voted said “Yes” for our Neighbourhood Plan

This is a fantastic result for local democracy.

Very many thanks to all parishioners who:

  • served on the Steering Committee and the Focus Groups
  • helped deliver leaflets to advertise Open Days and the referendum
  • came to our Open Days
  • filled in our survey forms, gave us your views
  • and voted in the referendum

What happens next?

Our Neighbourhood Plan has to be submitted to a full Council meeting of Horsham District Council (provisionally on 21 October 2015) for a decision on whether Horsham District Council will adopt the Plan.

After this, our Neighbourhood Plan will be used by Horsham District Council to help determine planning applications in the Parish up to the year 2031.

Task nearly completed! Well done to everyone.
