Vote On Your Neighbourhood Plan – 3rd May
On the 3rd May, alongside the local council elections, all registered local voters will have the chance to vote for or against the Woodford cum Membris Neighbourhood Development Plan. Every vote counts. The plan will be adopted if a majority of voters are in favour of it. What does the neighbourhood plan do??
- The Plan Helps Control Local Development.
The plan is meant to make sure that local development fits local needs. It has been produced by local people. Neighbourhood Plans have legal status and mean that developers and the District Council have to take account of what they say along with national policy and the rest of the development plan, which includes the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy and the saved policies of the Daventry District Local Plan (1997).
- Having A Plan Provides More Money From Developers For The Village.
With an approved plan, the Parish gets a greater share of money paid by developers towards community infrastructure. This can be used to improve local services in our village.
