NDP Referendum


Melbourne Parish Council submitted its neighbourhood development plan and was supported by a referendum held on 7th July 2022, where the question was "Do you want South Derbyshire District Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Melbourne to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"

The turnout was 18.44% out of an electorate of 4116 with 663 votes in favour and 95 against. The neighbourhood development plan has been endorsed by members of the public and it will help shape the future of development in the area; it has a focus on protecting the conservation area, heritage assets and open spaces that give the parish its "special character".

The parish council will consider the community aspirations contained in the plan as part of the action planning process.
