Neighbourhood Planning Referendum

Neighbourhood plans

Under the Localism Act 2011, a town or parish has the ability to produce a neighbourhood plan, which can establish a strategic general planning policy for the development and use of land in the community.

Information on current neighbourhood plans in preparation are available to view on our Neighbourhood Plans webpage.

For general information on neighbourhood planning, please visit our Neighbourhood Planning webpages.

Proceeding to a referendum

When a town or parish council's draft plan has been approved by an independent examiner, the Borough Council is asked to put a question to voters of the relevant area at a referendum.

The question usually asks voters if they want Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council to use the neighbourhood plan when deciding planning applications in the area.
