NDP Referendum Result

On February 14th the referendum was held and the community voted to approve the NDP.

  • Votes for YES      97   (85.1%)
  • Votes for NO        17   (14.9%)
  • Turnout  23.4%

Here is Herefordshire Council’s official Declaration of Result of Poll.

This means that the NDP is now officially the local tier in the statutory planning framework:

  • National:   National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF)
  • County:      Herefordshire Local Plan, Core Strategy
  • Local:         Neighbourhood Development Plan

This statutory planning framework governs the development and use of land in the area. When planning applications are made, they must be decided in accordance with this framework, unless there are overriding circumstances to the contrary.

The production of the NDP has been a three year project and we would like to thank everyone in the community who has contributed at every level.
