Hartford Neighbourhood Plan moves forward!

We're pleased to announce that the Hartford Neighbourhood Plan has now completed the review stage, and, following some revisions as a result of comments from the independent reviewer, it has been recommended to go forward for referendum.

Councillor Brian Clarke (Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Infrastructure) has, under delegated powers, authorised the modified plan and the referendum will take place on Thursday 5 May, the same day as the election of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

The referendum is the last stage of the process; providing a majority of parishioners vote for acceptance of the plan, it becomes 'made' and it is then used in the review of future planning applications in the village.
