Neighbourhood Planning Front Runners Scheme
NEARLY 1000 PEOPLE VOTED YES FOR THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
The neighbourhood plan has been supported by the majority of Sudbury residents who voted. The new Neighbourhood Plan for Sudbury will now be used by Brent Council to guide development and planning decisions in the Sudbury area, after 905 Sudbury residents voted in favour of it in a local vote held on Thursday 10 September. The total number of votes cast was 960, a turnout of 16.38%. a total of 905 voted yes and 52 voted no, with 3 ballot papers rejected for being unmarked.
The Neighbourhood Plan, which was prepared by the Sudbury Town Residents Association in consultation with local residents, is the first ever Neighbourhood Plan to become part of Brent Council’s planning policy since neighbourhood plans were introduced under the Localism Act in 2011 to give communities a greater say in how their neighbourhoods develop.
Thank you very much for your support. Without your help and support we could not have achieved this amazing result of 93% YES VOTE.
