Date set for the Neighbourhood Plan referendum

Update: Official notice of Referendum

The Lytchett Matravers Neighbourhood Planning Group submitted the plan to Purbeck District Council in December 2015. Since then it has been sent for consultation throughout Purbeck and has now been reviewed by an external examiner. The examiner’s report has now been accepted by Purbeck District Council and the date for the parish referendum set for May 4th, 2017.

The referendum is the final stage in the plan evolution and is the opportunity for Lytchett Matravers residents to vote for the plan and to have the plan legally adopted by Purbeck District Council.

The Parish Council will be distributing a Lytchett Link nearer the time to remind all and to set out the benefits of having a neighbourhood plan for the village. Those benefits are having a direct say in the type of development in and around the village, ensuring that the published design principles for any development are adhered to and for obtaining the Community Infrastructure contributions from any development to be used to improve and enhance the village for all residents.
