Dear Forum Members, Partners and associates

The result of the Referendum on 16th September 2021 on our High Lane Neighbourhood Plan was an emphatic YES!

The vote was 1050 Yes (92.35%) to 87 No (7.65%) and 3 Rejected papers, with a fantastic turnout of 29.9%.

The village will now have a very important document to influence its future!
The committee would like to thank all our members, partners and associates for your wonderful support over the four years it has taken to develop the plan, all the engagement and responses to our consultations and attendance at our events.

This included 150 people attending the open day on the 4th September as we prepared for the referendum.
We said that every vote mattered, and this scale of support will give us a strong mandate to use the Plan and Design Codes to represent the community in all future planning applications, consultations and master plans for the designated area.

We will be holding our annual AGM in December and hope you can join us to celebrate this success and your significant part in it.

Thanks again to you all,

HLVNF Committee
