REFERENDUM DAY - THURSDAY 6th MAY 2021
MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT FOR YOUR TOWN
A Vote for the Plan will help protect 28 parks and green spaces from future development, support a robust, accessible and sympathetic Creative Quarter redevelopment, promote higher housing design standards, encourage appropriate brownfield usage, support the use of sustainable travel and help protect our existing community facilities.
A total of 50% plus one Yes Votes are needed of the total number of people who vote to enable the Plan to pass referendum. When that happens, hopefully, the District Council then has to “make” the Plan at the earliest opportunity so it becomes part of the Local Plan and must be taken into consideration for all future planning application in Leamington.
The Town Council’s share of the Community Infrastructure Levy from developers will also rise from 15 to 25% on adoption of the Neighbourhood Plan. This will enable the Town Council to make useful contributions to much needed infrastructure improvements or fund other projects named in the Plan.
