THE LISS NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN REFERENDUM 

 

The Liss Village Neighbourhood Development Plan has been overwhelming approved by Thursday’s referendum.

The result was 1251 (87.7%) for the plan, and 177 (12.3%) against, which was a turnout of 30%.

The plan will now be adopted by the South Downs National Park Authority as part of the Development Plan for Liss. Once that has been done planning decisions in Liss will have to be taken in accordance with the plan.

The Plan can be found on the neighbourhood plan website.

 

The Liss Neighbourhood Plan Referendum

Update 5/10/17

The independent examiner into the Liss Village Neighbourhood Development Plan has recommended that the plan should proceed to a final decision by referendum, subject to a number of modifications, although none of these are major.  The South Downs National Park Authority considered the modifications on 14 September and agreed to accept them all.  The plan will now be be put to a referendum on the 9th November.  It will be organised by East Hants District Council just like an election and voters in Liss will be asked if they support the plan being used as a basis for deciding planning applications in Liss.  The decision will be by a simple majority of those voting.

It is important the everyone votes, for or against the plan. Without a plan decisions on housing allocations in Liss will be made by the South Downs National Park.

The referendum version of the plan can be found on the neighbourhood plan website by following this link, and can also be found on the website of EHDC. A paper copy can be inspected in the offices of the Parish Council behind the village hall.

Supporting documents to the plan, including the Examiner's report and the report to South Downs Planning Committee of 14th September can be found on the neighbourhood plan website.
