The Examiner has completed his review and has recommended that the Plan now proceeds to Referendum. He has requested a few minor changes, which we have made. The plan, on which you will be invited to vote, can be read here. There will also be paper copies available for inspection from 3rd July in the Parish Office (01477 535825).
The date for the Referendum is Thursday 17th August. All residents of Goostrey Parish who are on the Electoral Register will be able to vote. There will be a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question which will be:
‘Do you want Cheshire East Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Goostrey to help it decide Planning Applications in the Neighbourhood Area?’
The Neighbourhood Plan will only be adopted or ‘made’ if more people vote ‘yes’ than ‘no’. If the Plan is adopted it will run until 2030. It will aim to deliver the Vision via a set of Policies which reflect the views expressed by residents. Please see below.
The Parish Council encourage you to vote, but if you cannot vote in person on the day, please consider applying for a Postal Vote or a Proxy Vote by doing a Google search for “Apply for a Postal Vote”. This must be done by 31st July.
