The Referendum for the Raunds Neighbourhood Plan took place on November 16th 2017, the referendum question was:
Do you want East Northamptonshire District Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Raunds to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?
In the referendum 85% of those who voted answered YES. The plan must therefore now be "made" (adopted) by East Northamptonshire Council and carries real legal weight when planning applications for the local area are decided. More »
The Neighbourhood Plan can protect many open spaces, local heritage buildings community facilities and local employment sites. The plan also promotes good design and the commercial viability of the Town Centre.
Cllr Nick Beck the Mayor of Raunds said "I am pleased that the Raunds Neighbourhood Plan will now be adopted, and I would like to thank everyone who voted in the referendum. The plan has taken six years to develop and my thanks go to all who have been involved in its preparation."
