Chaddesley Corbett’s Neighbourhood Plan has been approved at referendum.

In just over 12 months, Kirkwells have helped the Parish Council get their Neighbourhood Plan to this all important stage.

The referendum  was held on Thursday 11 September 2014. The question which was asked in the referendum was:

‘Do you want Wyre Forest District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Chaddesley Corbett to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’

There were 328 votes cast in total, of which 265 (81%) were in favour of the plan, to 62 (19%) votes against the plan.  One ballot paper was rejected and the turnout was 27.8%.

Kirkwells Director Louise Kirkup said:

” In a little over 12 months we have helped the Steering Group to really get things moving. Now the plan has got a yes vote a referendum it will soon be made part of the development plan – giving local people more power over future development in their area.”
