Our Neighbourhood Plan passed examination earlier this year and the Neighbourhood Forum and the Council have confirmed that the Neighbourhood Plan, as submitted below, will be updated with the recommended changes outlined in the examiners report. The Council have now set a referendum date of 26th August 2021.
