The Shrivenham Neighbourhood Plan referendum will take place on Thursday 26th March 2020
POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The question asked at the Referendum will be:
Do you want Vale of White Horse District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Shrivenham to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?
You vote by putting a cross (X) in the ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ box on the ballot paper.
If more people vote ‘yes’ than ‘no’ in the Referendum, then Vale of White Horse District Council will use the Shrivenham Neighbourhood Development Plan to help it to decide planning applications within Shrivenham.
The Neighbourhood Plan, once adopted, will then become part of the Development Plan used by the Local Planning Authority (Vale of White Horse District Council).
If more people vote ‘no’ than ‘yes’, in this Referendum or there is a tied vote, then planning applications will continue to be decided without reference to the Neighbourhood Development Plan as part of the Development Plan for the local area.
The Referendum will be conducted in accordance with procedures similar to those used at local government elections.
