Results of "Call for Sites" survey published

Thank you to those who took part in the recent vote on whether the Leavenheath Neighbourhood Plan should undertake a ‘Call for Sites’ with the potential for allocating additional sites for development within the parish. Leaflets were hand delivered to every dwelling in the parish over the week of the 10th August 2020, with all votes to be returned and counted by Saturday 29th August 2020.

We received a total of 240 votes, with 44 ‘Yes’ votes (18%) and 196 ‘No’ votes (82%). We have received a clear majority vote for ‘No’, and therefore the Neighbourhood Plan will not be undertaking a ‘Call for Sites’, and will not look to allocate more land than is currently identified within the emerging Joint Local Plan.

Thank you for your support in this important process for the Leavenheath Neighbourhood Plan, and we will be in contact again in Autumn for the next stage of consultation.
