Whitnash Neighbourhood Development Plan – Made

Whitnash Neighbourhood Development Plan - Made

The Whitnash Neighbourhood Plan was independently examined (reported July 2015) and the recommendations of the Examiner incorporated into the final version of the Plan. This was then subject to a referendum on 26 November 2015. More than half of those voting, voted in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan. This result was reported to a meeting of Warwick District Council (27 January 2016), who agreed to 'make' (bring into legal force) the plan. The Plan can be viewed below or on the Council’s website.
