Please see below details of the the latest consultation


Following a successful Independant Examination, DBC concluded that subject to making the recommended modifications, that the Neighbourhood Plan meets the Basic Conditions set out in the legislation and should proceed to referendum. The Examiner also recommends that the referendum area should be the same as the designated Neighbourhood Area.

A date for a local referendum has now been agreed with the Forum for Thursday 15 February 2018.

This will give Grovehill residents the opportunity to vote on whether they wish the Neighbourhood Plan to be used by us as a planning policy document.

In order to help residents decide on a “YES” vote we will be holding a number of drop-in sessions in the run up to the referendum in February where you can come along an an ask us questions.

  • Drop-in events at the Church meeting room (adjacent to the community centre) 7.30-9.00pm
  • Monday 4th December 17
  • Monday 8th January 18
  • Monday 5th February 18
