Residents vote to adopt Salford Priors neighbourhood plan
Salford Priors residents have voted to adopt the village’s neighbourhood plan, which will be used to help decide planning applications in the area.
From an overall turnout pf 39.1%, 86.8% of voters were in favour of adopting the Salford Seven Neighbourhood Plan, with 13.2% voting against.
The result will now go before Stratford District Council, who are expected to formally approve the adoption of the plan.
In addition to Salford Priors, the Salford Seven Neighbourhood Plan covers Abbot’s Salford, Dunnington, Iron Cross, Pitchill and The Bevingtons.
The Salford Priors Neighbourhood Plan is the third neighbourhood to get to the referendum stage following Kineton and Long Compton, where residents both voted to approve the plans.
During this week’s cabinet meeting at Stratford District Council, councillors approved Bidford’s Neighbourhood Development Plan to go out for referendum.
If residents choose to approve the plan, it is likely to be formally adopted during the summer.
