Neighbourhood Plan Open Days

Over the coming days residents of Hugglescote and Donington le Heath will receive polling cards from NWLDC, in fact some have already been received. These polling cards are for residents to vote on accepting or rejecting the new Parish Neighbourhood Plan.

The actual voting day is 21st October and the Parish Council urge as many people as possible to vote.

The plan has been some four years in the making and, although led by the Parish Council, has been drawn up in consultation with local residents, without whom the plan would not be as comprehensive as it is.

Probably the most important part of the plan is where it protects local green spaces so that developers cannot take over every square inch of land that is left.

There will open days at the Hugglescote Community Centre on the 9th & 16 October where there will be an opportunity to read the documents, background information and talk to residents, councillors who produced the plan and what decisions were made to include documents in the final plan.

The plan if it receives a majority vote in favour, will have legal backing and has to be taken into account by the District and County Councils when they consider planning applications.

Please, please vote, the more people that vote, the more weight the Councils have to protect our green spaces.

We look forward to seeing you.
