BPNP Referendum

After many consultations, examinations and revisions a referendum on Badby Parish Neighbourhood Plan will take place on Thursday 24th January 2019.

The question to be asked will be “Do you want Daventry District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Badby to help it decide planning applications in the Neighbourhood area?”  A straight Yes or No answer is required and the result will be determined by 50% plus 1 of those who vote.

Hard copies of the Plan can be viewed at St. Mary’s Church, the Maltsters (closed Monday) or DDC Offices in Daventry.

More information can be found here

Don’t forget to vote – it is your Plan and your vote is important.
