Neighbourhood planning referendums

Neighbourhood planning is optional and aims to help local communities play a direct role in planning the areas in which they live and work.

Neighbourhood plans are prepared by town or parish councils, or neighbourhood forums. The plan can show how the community wants land to be used and developed in its area.

Once a neighbourhood plan or order has been prepared, an independent examiner will check that it meets the right basic standards.

The council will organise a referendum on any plan or order that meets the basic standards. This ensures that the community has the final say on whether a neighbourhood plan or order comes into force.

People living in the neighbourhood who are registered to vote in local elections will be entitled to vote in a referendum, which would be conducted following similar procedures to those used at local government elections.

More information can be found on the Melton Local Plan website.
