Referendum to be held in 2018 over village neighbourhood plan

PUBLISHED: 07:39 05 November 2017

Voters in Claverham will go to the polls in the new year to decide if they want a long-term plan for the village.

Claverham’s neighbourhood development plan was given the green light by North Somerset Council’s executive in October which means it is just a positive referendum away from being adopted.

It outlines areas where development would not be welcome, with the importance of maintaining the village boundary with Cleeve emphasised.

Nigel Cooper, chairman of the Claverham Future, thanked those who helped with the ‘long process’.

He said it is unfortunate an independent examiner did not believe there was enough evidence to include the May Day field by the village hall as a local green space, which would have given it extra protection from development.

Mr Cooper said: “We believe the plan is the best way to safeguard the village and hope people vote for it.”

The referendum will be held on January 18.
