If you are registered to vote in Bigbury, please come along and cast your vote in our Referendum on Thursday 27th Feb 2020 at the Memorial Hall.
The question to be decided is ‘Do you want SHDC to use the Neighbourhood Plan to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’
For the avoidance of doubt, you vote by putting a cross (X) in the ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ box on the ballot paper.
If more people vote ‘yes’ than ‘no’ in the Referendum, then South Hams District Council will use the Bigbury Neighbourhood Plan to help it to decide planning applications within Bigbury.
Therefore, a ‘YES’ vote would provide greater protection from unwanted development within the parish, guided by the Neighbourhood Plan. A ‘NO’ vote would mean a loss of local control over any development – other people would decide where and what type of development would be allowed.
