Crich Parish Neighbourhood Plan

Crich Neighbourhood Plan Referendum


The planned Referendum which is scheduled to take place on the 19th July 2018 is being cancelled and re-arranged for the 6th September 2018.

The cancellation is due to the identification of an error in the wording of the Crich Parish Neighbourhood Plan document. This document is not in accordance with the Examiner’s Recommendations and therefore the Referendum cannot proceed until the error is corrected.

A Poll Card will be issued with the 6th September date and if you vote by postal vote a new postal voting pack will be sent to you nearer the Referendum date.

The Borough Council is sorry that it has found that it is necessary to cancel the Referendum but it needs to ensure that the documents are correct and in accordance with the Regulations’.
