As you may have read here and in the local press, the Much Wenlock Neighbourhood Plan referendum returned an 85% “Yes” vote. This is a very firm endorsement of the first such plan in the West Midlands to reach this stage. The turnout was 42%, one of the highest of the seventeen plans put to referendum in England so far.
What happens now? I have arranged a meeting on 22nd July where Shropshire Council officers will explain how the Neighbourhood Plan will work in practice when a planning application for a new development is submitted. They will also touch on other topics including the Much Wenlock Place Plan and the Community Infrastructure Levy.
All are welcome and there will be a question and answer session – the Priory Hall doors open at 7:30pm.
The LJC will meet at Priory Hall at 7:00pm on Wednesday 29th January. There will be presentations about flood management and first responders, as well as by past recipients telling how they’ve spent their grant money. There are also a number of grant applications for local causes. All are very welcome to attend.
The next meeting will be held in Priory Hall, Much Wenlock at 7:00pm on Wednesday 29th January. Applications for grants will be considered and we will learn about the success of projects which have previously received funding. Further details will appear in the press and posters nearer the time – everyone is welcome.
The independent examiner held a hearing into the Neighbourhood Plan at Priory Hall on 17th October. He asked questions of representatives of the Town Council, Shropshire Council and Wenlock Estates/Persimmon Homes. An audience of up to forty residents listened intently and the general opinion was that the hearing was conducted in a very even-handed manner. The examiner’s report will be sent to Shropshire Council in early November, when we will learn the outcome.
