The Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Plan for Goostrey is now finished, approved by the Examiner, and will go to a public vote in a referendum on Thursday 17th August when Goostrey residents will be able to vote for it to be adopted. If you will be away and can’t vote in person you can easily apply through the following links for a Postal Vote or a Proxy Vote but must do so by 31st July.
We encourage everyone to vote “YES” for the Plan; designed to deliver the Vision via a set of Policies that reflect the views expressed by residents in the village questionnaire back in 2015 after the Parish Council first set up the Neighbourhood Plan Committee.
You can read the full plan – click on the link Goostrey Neighbourhood Plan – which will only be adopted if more people vote ‘yes’ than ‘no’.
Paper copies are available for inspection from 3rd July in the Parish Office (01477 535825).
All residents of Goostrey Parish on the Electoral Register will be able to vote – the question will be:
- ‘Do you want Cheshire East Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Goostrey to help it decide Planning Applications in the Neighbourhood Area?’
Referendum is Thursday 17th August 2017.
