A NEIGHBOURHOOD Plan that will influence future development in Crediton parish will go to a local referendum on Thursday, September 22.

The Neighbourhood Plan, which has been subject to extensive community consultations and independent examination, has been prepared by Crediton Town Council.

The referendum will provide all eligible residents with an opportunity to vote on the Neighbourhood Plan.

If the majority vote in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan and Mid Devon District Council then adopt the plan, it must then be considered by Mid Devon District Council when making decisions on planning applications in the Crediton parish.

A person is able to vote in the referendum if, on September 22, 2022, they are entitled to vote in a local government election and their qualifying address for the election is in the Crediton parish.

Each entitled voter will be sent a referendum poll card.

All information relating to the referendum, including a map of the referendum area, is available to view at the following address: www.middevon.gov.uk/residents/planning-policy/neighbourhood-planning/crediton-neighbourhood-plan .

The following polling stations will be open for residents to vote:

1. The Meadow Suite, Lords Meadow Leisure Centre, Commercial Way, Crediton, EX17 1ER

2. The Congregational Church, 98 High Street, Crediton EX17 3LF.

Once adopted, Neighbourhood Plans are key documents with a legal status which influence the shape and development of the areas they cover over many years.

Mid Devon District Council encourages all residents eligible to vote in the referendum to check to ensure they are registered, and therefore able to vote on the day.
