Neighbourhood Plan Referendum and Parish Poll Results

Date Published: 08 September 2017
Rutland County Council

Residents in Greetham have voted in favour of a Neighbourhood Plan for their Parish following a referendum on Thursday 7th September 2017.

The Neighbourhood Plan sets out the Parish Council’s views of how Greetham should be developed in future and includes policies on a range of issues such as the environment, energy, transport, housing, economy and the community.

The final plan was subject to public consultation from March to April 2017, before an independent examiner recommended that it should proceed to a referendum.

The referendum on 7th September asked Greetham residents: “Do you want Rutland County Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Greetham to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

More than 50% support from those that vote is needed in order to bring a Neighbourhood Plan into force.

The number of people who voted ‘Yes’ in response to the referendum question was 225. The number voted ‘No’ was 23. Total turnout for the referendum was 45%.
