LONGTOWN NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN
The Neighbourhood Plan underwent its Referendum on Thursday 30th January 2020 and received a positive referendum result.
Yes – 189 votes / 89.2%
No – 23 votes / 10.8%
This means that the NDP will have full weight from 31st January 2020. A report is currently being prepared for the Cabinet Member and it is anticipated that the plan will be formally adopted by Herefordshire Council, the Planning Authority, at the end of February. At this point the plan will form part of the statutory development plan for Herefordshire.
