Ewyas Harold Group Parish Council
Your Neighbourhood. Your Plan. Your Future.
Neighbourhood Development Plan Referendum
Thursday March 15th 2018
Very soon the Parishes of Abbeydore and Bacton, Ewyas Harold, Dulas, Rowlestone, Llancillo, and Kentchurch will have an opportunity to vote on the Neighbourhood Development Plan which aims to ensure that local opinions about development are not only heard, but turned into planning law.
It’s important you cast your vote!
The Neighbourhood Development Plan is based on information gathered during many public consultations with residents and businesses over the last six years. The result was very clear. You asked us to retain the beautiful, peaceful, rural nature of the area, while allowing reasonable development to take place, to meet local housing needs. The plan has now been through all the required stages and, if approved in the referendum, it will become part of planning law.
Now it’s your turn! Please vote on Thursday.
Polling stations are Ewyas Harold Memorial Hall and Abbeydore Village Hall. Polls are open from 7:00am until 10:00pm.
If you would like to read the Neighbourhood Development Plan, copies are available at: The Temple Inn, Ewyas Harold Surgery, Pontrilas Store, Abbeydore Village Hall, Bacton Village Hall
