Effingham Neighbourhood Plan referendum announced

Published at 2:55pm 19th January 2018.

The referendum will ask for a "Yes" or "No" answer to the following question:

"Do you want Guildford Borough Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Effingham to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"

We will send referendum polling information to residents living in the Effingham Neighbourhood Area (Effingham ward and parish) who are registered and eligible to vote in Council elections.

Find out more information about the plan and the referendum on our Effingham Neighbourhood Plan Referendum page.

Effingham Neighbourhood Plan

Neighbourhood plans allow local people to produce planning policies for their local area.

The Effingham Neighbourhood Plan was examined during summer 2017. The Council agreed with the independent examiner who recommended making specified modifications to the plan and then holding a referendum, and that the referendum area should be the Effingham Neighbourhood Area (Effingham ward and parish).  To see a statement that sets out this decision and the reasons for making it, please visit ourEffingham Neighbourhood Plan page.

If a majority of those who vote in the referendum vote "Yes", the plan will become part of the Development Plan for the borough. It will then be used to help determine planning applications within the Effingham Neighbourhood Area along with the Council's current Local Plan and other considerations.

To find out more about neighbourhood planning please visit our Neighbourhood planning information page.

If you want to know more about the proposal for a neighbourhood plan, please contact our Planning Policy Team at planningpolicy@guildford.gov.uk or telephone 01483 444471.
