Bramber Prepares For A Referendum
On Our Neighbourhood Plan
After many years of hard work from a dedicated group of volunteers, the Bramber Neighbourhood Plan (NHP) is ready to be taken to a Referendum to allow Bramber residents to exercise their democratic right to either accept or reject it. Horsham District Council (HDC) is looking to take our NHP to a Referendum on 6th May 2021 - the same day as local council elections.
HDC is aware of the impact Covid restrictions might have and advise "With COVID still a real concern for many in our communities we have taken the decision to proceed with the referendum and not hold up the process of which, many have been very patient with the delay in taking their plan to a referendum. Nevertheless, the regulations are still very clear on protocol and with no anticipated changes in legislation, there is a requirement to have local deposit points in the district. Therefore, to comply with the Regulations and ensure there is no challenge further down the line we ask in the first instance all enquiries from residents eligible to vote, to view the plan should be directed online".
These plans are available online (see links below) and a deposit hard copy can be viewed by contacting the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org. The document may be viewed, by appointment, Monday to Friday between the hours of 10am and 3pm.
The Neighbourhood Plan Referendum Regulations require HDC to publish an Information Statement (which sets out the general information on Neighbourhood Planning and sets out the Referendum details) for each plan being considered. The documents available to view via the buttons below comprise:-
A referendum version of the plan which has all the modifications implemented
