It is now more than two and a half years since we started work on the Broughton Neighbourhood Plan. In this time the Plan has been through a number of drafts, numerous rounds of consultation and two independent examinations.
The last stage of the process is a referendum on whether to adopt the Plan.
All those on the electoral register of the civil parish (see How do I vote?) will be able to vote. The referendum date has now been set for Thursday 18th October and the Steering group is working on planning for the referendum campaign.
We’re now looking for help with the ‘Yes’ campaign, so if you would like to be involved in any way, please let us know.
We’re also looking for sponsorship for events and the cost of the campaign. If you are a business or individual who would like to help out financially, please get in touch!
We plan to hold several events in the run up to the campaign, including a workshop on how to promote the Plan on Saturday 22nd September at 2pm; alongside a launch event at 1pm to start the campaign.
Your priority now is to make sure you are registered to vote (see How do I Vote?).
