Congratulations to Asfordby Neighbourhood Plan on their successful referendum. The referendum, which took place on Thursday 28th September 2017, saw a turnout of 15.36% with the following results:-
334 - YES VOTES
64 - NO VOTES
The Asfordby Parish Neighbourhood Plan has allowed people, who live, work and have a business in the parish, to have a say on where they think new houses, businesses and shops should go and what they should look like. The plan provides for around 150 new homes to be built and business development at the former Asfordby Mine and Holwell Works. Important open spaces are to be protected, including the countryside separating the settlements of Asfordby, Asfordby Valley and Asfordby Hill.
Ronnie DeBurle, Asfordby Parish Council Chairman and Borough Councillor said:
'A lot of time and effort has gone into preparing the Plan, but by working together we can now ensure the parish develops in a way that meets the needs of everyone.'
