Referendums for neighbourhood planning

Results of a neighbourhood planning referendum

The votes in a neighbourhood planning referendum are counted immediately after the poll closes.

The count is not public, but our 'Returning Officer' may appoint observers.

If more than 50% of votes support the plan it will be 'brought it into force' by us (as the 'local planning authority') and used as part of decision making for planning permission.

The result for recent neighbourhood planning referendums are published online; parish councils publish result the following day.
