“Do you want Horsham District Council and South Downs National Park Authority to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Storrington and Sullington Parish, and Washington Parish to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
On 18 July 2019, there will be a referendum on a neighbourhood development plan for Storrington and Sullington Parish and Washington Parish. If you vote in the referendum you will receive a ballot paper with this question.
A Neighbourhood Plan is a way of helping local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work.
If more people vote ‘yes’ than ‘no’ in this referendum, then Horsham District Council and South Downs National Park Authority will use the Neighbourhood Development Plan to help it decide planning applications in Storrington and Sullington Parish, and Washington Parish.
If more people vote ‘no’ than ‘yes’, then planning applications will be decided without using the Neighbourhood Development Plan as part of the Development Plan for the local area.
