Wootton and St Helen Without

Wootton Parish Council and St Helen Without Parish Councils are working on a neighbourhood plan.  The process gives communities the power to develop a shared vision for their area. Neighbourhood Plans can shape, direct and help to deliver sustainable development, by influencing local planning decisions as part of the statutory development plan. Neighbourhood plans should not promote less development than set out in strategic policies for the area or undermine those strategic policies.

What's happening now? 

Following the independent examination of plan, the district council has agreed that the plan should now proceed to referendum. The referendum will take place on Thursday, 24 October 2019.

To vote you must be registered to vote in local elections by Tuesday, 8 October 2019 and live in the referendum area. Make sure you Register to Vote if you haven’t already.
