Residents in Whissendine have voted in favour of a Neighbourhood Plan for their area, following a referendum on Thursday 29 February 2024.

The referendum asked residents:

Do you want Rutland County Council to use the neighbourhood plan for the Parish of Whissendine to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?

More than 50% support from those who voted is needed to bring a Neighbourhood Plan into force.

The number of people who voted ‘Yes’ in response to the referendum question was 350. The number voted ‘No’ was 4. Total turnout for the referendum was 35%.

The full Declaration of Result of Poll for the Whissendine Neighbourhood Plan referendum can be viewed on our Neighbourhood Planning Referendums page.

Further information about the Neighbourhood Plan itself can be found on our Planning and Building Control page.

As the Local Planning Authority, Rutland County Council must formally adopt the Plan within eight weeks of the referendum.
