Ashbury Neighbourhood Plan

Ashbury Parish Council is working on creating a neighbourhood plan. The process empowers local communities to help direct and shape the way their area grows and develops into the future. A neighbourhood plan will form part of the development plan, which helps to determine future planning applications.

What’s happening now?

The Council accepted the recommendation from Cabinet to make the Ashbury neighbourhood plan on 17 July 2019. The council's decision statement and made plan will be published in due course.  

 Take a look at the Neighbourhood Plan (Referendum Version) (8.8 MB) PDF .

 The official referendum results were: 

  • Votes in favour of adopting the neighbourhood plan (YES vote): 195 (94.7%)
  • Votes against adopting the neighbourhood plan (No vote): 11 (5.3%)
  • Turnout: 46.2%

Section 3 of the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017 (as amended) gives neighbourhood plans full legal effect once they have passed their local referendum.
