We are delighted to announce that the result of the referendum on 23rd November on the Lewknor Parish Neighbourhood Plan was an overwhelming vote in favour. Of the 33.5% turnout, 90.7% were in favour. Thank you to everyone who came out to vote; your support for the plan is much appreciated. This means that the Neighbourhood Plan will now be adopted by South Oxfordshire District Council, therefore planners will need to take it into account in any planning decisions.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this result by responding to our various consultations which ensured the plan reflected the views of residents, by offering feedback, by offering your skills and time, or for simply spreading the word.
I would personally like to thank the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, both the current members: Kayti Foster, Duncan Boulton and Peter Freeman who have worked tirelessly on this for more than six years, and past members of the group for their hard work on the plan.
Chairman, Lewknor Parish Neighbourhood Plan Group
