Ivybridge Neighbourhood Plan Referendum - Results

A Referendum relating to the Ivybridge Neighbourhood Plan was held on Thursday 30 November 2017.

Do you want South Hams District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Ivybridge to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?
 Votes RecordedPercentage
Number cast in favour of a YES110684.75%
Number cast in favour of a NO19715.09%


More than half of those voting HAVE voted in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan for Ivybridge.

The Question to be Asked at the Referendum was:

"Do you want South Hams District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Ivybridge to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"

You vote by putting a cross (X) in the 'Yes' or 'No' box on the ballot paper.

If more people vote 'yes' than 'no' in the Referendum, then South Hams District Council will use the Ivybridge Neighbourhood Plan to help it to decide planning applications within Ivybridge.

The Neighbourhood Plan once adopted will then become part of the Development Plan used by the Local Planning Authority (South Hams District Council).

If more people vote 'no' than 'yes', in this Referendum or there is a tied vote, then planning applications will continue to be decided without reference to the Neighbourhood Plan as part of the Development Plan for the local area.

The Referendum will be conducted in accordance with procedures similar to those used at local government elections.
