Barrow upon Soar Neighbourhood Planning Referendum - Thursday 8th February

In 2011, communities like Barrow were given a new right to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan. This right is aimed at giving local communities genuine opportunities to influence the future of the places where they live. Decisions on planning applications must take account of neighbourhood plans.

Barrow's Neighbourhood Plan is a readable and very reasonable summary of the good things Barrow has to offer its residents, what its problems are, how we would like it to develop in the future. If we vote for it, we will get real powers to influence the decisions of planners. We expect to be able to limit future housing developments, preserve our green spaces, maintain our treasured old buildings and improve our services.
If we don't vote for it we will be throwing away these powers and could  expect more big developments that eat away at our green fields and parks and choke our services.

You can find the Neighbourhood Plan here: Neighbourhood Plan 2016 - 2028


DON'T FORGET TO VOTE IN FAVOUR OF THE PLAN ON FEB 8th!
