Development Watch Alert Neighbourhood Plan referendum on 6 February - please vote!
Residents of Barkham and Arborfield will hopefully be aware that there is a local referendum on 6 February on the Neighbourhood Plan. You should all have received voting forms as you would for a local or national election and probably seen the boards around the parishes.
We have attached a 2 page Q&A on the key points of the Plan and why it is important. As it says in the document:
"In simple terms, if you wish to see the Neighbourhood Plan applied to local planning decisions then you will support the plan. Conversely, if you believe that the development in the countryside should not face additional restrictions, then you will oppose the Plan."
The question on the voting paper is “Do you want Wokingham Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Arborfield & Barkham to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
We strongly encourage residents to vote YES on 6 February.
