Shipston residents have given the thumbs up to the town’s neighbourhood plan as a large majority voted to adopt it last week.
More than 87 per cent of the 1,066 votes cast were in favour of the plan, which will help decide future planning applications in the area.
The plan will now go back to Stratford District Council where it will be formally be adopted.
Shipston is not the only place where neighbourhood plans are a hot topic, Wellesbourne’s plan is rapidly approaching its referendum on Thursday 11th October.
To encourage as many residents as possible to vote in that referendum, the Wellesbourne & Walton Neighbourhood Plan team will be delivering leaflets, putting up posters and banners, and publicising the referendum as widely as possible.
Two drop-in sessions are planned for voters to find out more about the Plan and its policies on Saturday September 8, 11am-12pm, St Peter’s Church Rooms, Church Street and on Friday September 28, 4-7pm, and Saturday September 29, 8.30am- 5pm, Sainsbury’s, Loxley Road, Wellesbourne.
