Just a quick reminder about the referendum for the neighbourhood plan next week on Thursday 1 November.
Does it matter? Will it make a difference? Is it a good or bad thing?
Yes, it does; Yes, it should; and it is definitely good!
To some degree, more housing in Purton will be inevitable. What the plan helps to do, is to influence where some limited housing could go ~ to the more appropriate locations in Purton, rather than where developers think houses should go which is what has happened in the past.
It plans for the future. All documents are on the Purton Parish Council web site where there is the Plan itself and the background document with all the analysis in Planning for the Future, and various other documents too.
It is decided by simple majority, so your vote does count…
