Watlington residents can have say on proposed Neighbourhood Plan in December vote





Watlington residents will be able to have their say on a proposed Neighbourhood Plan for their village next month.

On December 7, voters will be asked to say yes or no to the following question: ‘Do you want West Norfolk Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Watlington to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’

Development of the Watlington Neighbourhood Plan, led by the parish council, has gone through a rigorous process. Since being submitted to the borough council, it has undergone an independent examination.

Earlier this year, the independent examiner passed it to proceed to referendum.

The referendum is the final stage of the plan-making process, which will allow the Neighbourhood Plan to be adopted if supported by a majority of more than 50% of voters in the referendum.

Voting in the referendum will take place at Jubilee Hall on Church Road, Watlington, from 7am-10pm on December 7.

Counting will take place the following day, and the result of the referendum is expected to be announced soon after midday on December 8.

All adults aged 18 or over on November 21, and who are registered to vote, will be eligible to vote in the referendum. Voters have been told that they should remember to present photo ID on the day.
