At the Crowthorne Neighbourhood Plan Referendum held on Thursday 6 May 2021, more than half of the local community of Crowthorne Parish that voted were in favour of the council using the Crowthorne Neighbourhood Plan to help decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area.
The referendum on the Crowthorne Neighbourhood Plan was based on the designated Crowthorne Parish Neighbourhood Area. The full results can be viewed in the declaration of result of poll.
In line with the Section 38(3A) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended), the Crowthorne Neighbourhood Plan came into legal force as part of the Development Plan for Crowthorne Parish with immediate effect after approval at referendum.
Decisions relating to proposals in Crowthorne Parish will therefore be made in line with the Crowthorne Neighbourhood Plan unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
The council will decide whether to formally 'make' the Neighbourhood Plan (keep it in legal force) on 1 June 2021 pursuant to Section 38A(4) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended).
This decision will be subject to a 5 clear working day call-in period, and will come into effect on 9 June 2021.
A decision statement will be published for the outcome of the Neighbourhood Plan.
