Villagers vote Yes to Neighbourhood Plan

Castlethorpe has voted overwhelmingly in favour of the new Neighbourhood Plan in the Referendum. The number of votes in favour was 336 (92.8%) and against 26 (7.2%). The turnout was also high at 43.2% of the total electorate and there were no spoiled or rejected ballot papers.

The result of the poll, which asked, “Do you want Milton Keynes Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for the Castlethorpe Area to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?” will now go to MKC to decide if they will adopt it so it becomes part of planning policy.
