The referendum relating to the Harlestone Neighbourhood Plan will be held on 20th April 2023. The question which will be asked is;

In accordance with the regulations the Council has published a Neighbourhood Plan Information Statement to support the referendum.

Staverton Neighbourhood Development Plan 2018-2029

The referendum on Staverton Neighbourhood Development Plan took place on 27 June 2019. As more than half of those voting, had not voted in favour of the neighbourhood plan, the Staverton Neighbourhood Development Plan was not 'made'. Consequently, no weight can be attached to the neighbourhood plan.
