Ruddington Neighbourhood Plan has now reached its final stage and will be holding a Referendum on Thursday 22nd July.
This is a direct vote in which you’re asked to either accept or reject the following proposal: “Do you want Rushcliffe Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Ruddington to help it decide planning applications in the Neighbourhood area?”
In order for Ruddington Neighbourhood Plan to be used to help decide planning applications in the Parish, over 51% of those voting in the Referendum must vote “Yes”. If this happens, as well as the Plan being used to help determine planning applications, 25% of revenues from the Community Infrastructure Levy arising from local housing developments will be paid to the Parish Council to fund projects that will benefit the community. This would represent a big increase on the current 15% funding to which the Council is entitled.
On Referendum Day, Thursday 22nd July, the polling stations to be used will be St Peter’s Rooms and the Village Hall.
Please take this important opportunity to have your say on how the future of our village and its infrastructure.
