In one of the largest votes of this kind, 11, 703 residents of Royal Leamington Spa (88.3% of those voting) voted “yes” for the town’s neighbourhood plan to be made.

Royal Leamington Spa is one of the 86 groups we have helped achieve successful yes votes at referendum. This allows them to have a plan for their area, a plan that forms part of the development plan and helps to give local people more say on planning decisions where they live.
