People living in Langham have voted in favour of a neighbourhood plan for their local area.
The Neighbourhood Plan sets out the Parish Council’s views of how Langham 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 August to September 2016, before an independent examiner recommended that it should proceed to a referendum.
The referendum was held on Thursday 2nd March, with Langham residents asked:
“Do you want Rutland County Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Langham to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
338 people voted ‘Yes’ in response to the referendum question. 34 voted ‘No’. More than 50% support is required in order to bring the Neighbourhood Plan into force.
Total turnout for the referendum was 373 (32%).
