TOWNSPEOPLE in Stratford have voted overwhelmingly in favour of adopting a neighbourhood plan.

It sets out a vision for the future of the area and planning policies which will be used by Stratford District Council to help decide planning applications in the town.

Of those who voted, 5,239 (91.2 per cent) were in favour, and 505 (8.7 per cent) were against. The turnout was 26.11 per cent. Fifty-three ballot papers were rejected.

Neighbourhood plans are a key component of the government’s Localism Act, which aims to devolve greater powers to councils and communities.

* RESIDENTS in Harbury and Deppers Bridge also voted in favour of adopting a neighbourhood plan.

Just over 94 per cent (822 voters) were in favour, with just under six per cent against. Turnout was 41.65 per cent.
