Referendum result

Thank you….

for voting in our referendum.  The referendum asked the following question:

“Do you want Sedgemoor District Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Wedmore Parish to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

48.1% of voters of Wedmore Parish  answered

      • YES881 votes
      • NO – 149 votes
      • Spoilt or not counted votes – 19

A massive endorsement of the plan and all the hard work that went into its preparation and examination!

So, the next steps are to incorporate the known changes into the successful draft Neighbourhood Plan and publish these on a date to be announced, so the Plan can take effect.
