Final News Update - October 2021

Goodbye from the Toad Team

Dear All

You have spoken.

As more than 50% of those who voted did so in favour of the Ombersley and Doverdale Neighbourhood Plan being used to determine planning applications within the parish, the plan will now be put before Wychavon District Council’s full Council meeting on 13th October for formal adoption. Thereafter, for the duration of the plan, the policies it contains must be considered alongside any planning applications for planning permission and development which affect this parish.

The full results were as follows:

  • 2035 people were eligible to vote
  • 513 ballot papers were issued
  • Turnout to vote, therefore, was 25.2%
  • Votes in favour of acceptance of the plan in determining future planning applications were 473 = 92.2%
  • Votes against acceptance of the plan in determining future planning applications were 39 = 7.6%
  • There was 1 Void ballot paper

Thank you to all those who voted. It has been an amazing journey over the last 4 years since the Parish Council voted to draft a Neighbourhood Plan with your help. We have learned a great deal from you all with regard to your aspirations and concerns about your locality.

Toad’s work is done for now, but the Parish Council will continue to use the information you have given us to work on your behalf.

We would like to sincerely thank all who have helped along the way, be it as part of the core volunteer group or by following us and giving your opinions.

Thank you to the small army of helpers who delivered leaflets, questionnaires etc. to every household, which is no mean feat given the area we cover. A huge thank you to Rick who has maintained the website and helped in emailing many of you to keep you informed of our progress and to Libby who has kept our social media profile updated.

This plan belongs to all of you, and we are grateful for your help in achieving our goal. We would not be where we are without all of you.

Sue CollierSo, thank you and goodbye.

With kind regards

Sue Collier
Ombersley & Doverdale Parish Council

Calling all Volunteers

If you feel that you would like to help, we need volunteers. The Parish Council cannot do this by themselves.  We need help with planning, communications, secretarial support, data analysis, IT and graphic design, and we will need help for manning drop-ins, coffee mornings, leaflet posting, photography and so on.

Everyone welcome!
