Outcome of the Edlington Neighbourhood Plan Referendum – 14th June, 2018
A huge thank you to all local residents who turned out and voted to support the proposed Edlington Neighbourhood Plan 2016-2032. The Plan was adopted at the referendum held on Thursday 14 June 2018. The referendum question was “Do you want Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Edlington to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area”. The result of the vote was 615 votes cast, 541 in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan and 70 against, with 4 spoilt ballot papers. As a result, the Plan will now be formally adopted by DMBC Planning Committee and will then form part of the Local Planning Framework and future planning applications in the village must have regard to the contents and vision within our Plan.
Declaration of result by Returning Officer.
