Referendum on the adoption of the Bracknell Town neighbourhood plan

4th August 2021 Posted in Council News

Hundreds view Bracknell neighbourhood plan policies as Bracknell neighbourhood plan referendum set for 9 September

——

Hundreds of residents have viewed the first policies of the Bracknell Town Neighbourhood Plan to be shared by Facebook and Twitter.

The referendum on the Bracknell Town Neighbourhood Plan (BTNP) will take place on Thursday 9 September. Residents in the plan area will be able to vote at polling stations or by post.

A key aim of the BTNP is to protect local green spaces, and to play a part in ensuring that new development in Bracknell is in character and of good quality. The plan’s 36 policies protect heritage buildings and community facilities and also support economic infrastructure and improvements to walking and cycling links.

Work on the plan has been undertaken by the Bracknell Town Neighbourhood Plan steering group, made up of Bracknell town councillors and volunteers, and chaired by Cllr Chris Turrell.

Cllr Turrell said: “For the plan to have come this far is a tribute to the tenacity of the steering group members, in particular in taking it through the more challenging stages of the process. The role of local residents in the consultation events has been important to the content of the plan. I encourage residents to look at the Plan, and to take part in the vote on 9 September.”

Further information on the plan is on the Bracknell Forest Council website.  Bracknell Forest Council are running the referendum.

A special edition of Bracknell Matters, Bracknell Town Council’s news magazine, will be circulated to all 22,000 households in the Bracknell Town area in August. This will give more detailed information on the content of the BTNP.
