The Referendum has been held on whether or not the Brighstone Parish Neighbourhood Plan should be adopted by the Isle of Wight Council as part of the Island Plan for all planning decisions in the parish.
There was a 22.56% turn out with 324 votes cast.
Yes – 293 (90.5%) No – 31 (9.5%)
This is a resounding Yes vote and a vindication of all the hard work that has been put in by so many local people working together to interpret local wishes and to develop this Plan for the community.
The Brighstone Parish Neighbourhood Plan 2016-2027 will now be an integral part of the Island Plan and will be used as part of the determination of all planning applications which come forward in the parish.
Thank you to everyone who has been involved and for all the hard work and support during the process which had led to this successful conclusion.
