Warmington2031 Neighbourhood Plan has been examined by an Independent Planning Inspector. Some policies within the plan have been amended to ensure that they are legally sound in planning terms. The final plan can be viewed via this link: http://warmington2031.org/examination-and-referendum
The final step in this process is that there will be a parish referendum on 24th October to decide whether it is taken forward to guide planning in Warmington.
A YES vote will mean that the plan is adopted, becomes part of the planning legal framework and forms part of the decision making process affecting all future development proposals in the village. The plan, which was collated by the wider community and involved much consultation with local residents and businesses, would maintain the existing village boundary and brings the previous village design statement into the document as a design code with legal standing.
A no vote would mean that the community led neighbourhood plan is not adopted leaving the North Northamptonshire plan, which as things currently stand, does away with defined village boundaries, as the default plan upon which decisions are made.
