The Newton and Noss Neighbourhood Plan was voted for on 28th June 2018 at a public referendum
and adopted by South Hams District Council on 19th July 2018
The Electorate of the Parish (1519 people) were asked the question:
‘Do you want South Hams District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Newton and Noss to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?
The results were as follows:
People who came out to vote (a 37.46% turnout)
Parishioners voted YES (85.76%)
Parishioners voted NO (13.53 %)
Papers rejected as spoiled (0.71%)
The plan has passed its external examination with flying colours. This is what the Examiner had to say about it just last month:-
“The plan is based on a very well researched evidence, extensive engagement with all sectors of the local community and provides a distinct set of policies, relevant to the needs of local people.
Subject to a number of modifications set out in this report, I conclude that the Newton and Noss Neighbourhood Plan meets the Basic Conditions and I am pleased to recommend that it should proceed to referendum.”
