Date set for referendum
PUBLISHED: 14:00 17 March 2019
Villagers will have their say on a plan which could shape the future of Yatton next month.
A referendum on Yatton’s neighbourhood development plan will be held on April 11.
The plan, which has been created by villagers in conjunction with Yatton Parish Council, will be used as a framework for development until 2026.
Yatton ward councillor Jill Iles, speaking at North Somerset Council’s executive meeting last month, called on members to support the plan.
She said: “The village of Yatton has increased in size significantly, and now the plan is before the executive I would request it proceeds with a referendum as soon as possible.”
A copy of the draft plan is available to view at Yatton Library, in High Street, and the vote will be held at Horsecastle Chapel, in Horsecastle Farm Road.
