Minutes:

The Corporate Director of Place presented a report which set out the results of the Huntington Neighbourhood Plan referendum, and asked Executive to formally ‘make’ the Neighbourhood Plan (the Plan) and bring it into full legal force as part of the Development Plan for York.  The report had been considered by the Local Plan Working Group at their meeting on 13 July 2021.

 

The referendum had taken place on 10 June 2021, following Executive approval on 18 March.  Of the 1318 valid votes cast (a turnout of 17.1%), 1144 were in favour of accepting the Plan and 174 were against.  In the absence of any unresolved legal challenges or conflicts with EU obligations or Convention rights, the council was therefore legally obliged to ‘make’ the Plan.  The declaration of the referendum result was attached as Annex A to the report and the Regulation 19 Decision Statement, for publication following the Executive’s decision, as Annex B.

 

Members thanked Huntington Parish Council and all those involved in producing the Plan.

 

Resolved:  (i)      That the results of the referendum be noted and that the Huntington Neighbourhood Plan be formally ‘made’.

 

                   (ii)      That the Decision Statement attached at Annex B to the report be published in accordance with Regulation 19 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2021 (as amended).

 

Reason:     To allow the Neighbourhood Plan to progress in line with the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations.
