Coleford’s Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is going to Referendum on Thursday 13th September 2018.

On 13th September 2018, residents of Coleford parish can vote on adopting the Plan as law. The Plan aims to give Coleford a bright and strong future by taking the the voices and views of residents and turning them into a legal planning document that can then influence future planning decisions to bring out the best in the area. After thorough consultation and numerous painstaking drafts, the Plan was submitted to the Forest of Dean District Council on 1st March 2018, where a further consultation took place, followed by an examination by an expert inspector. Now, on Thursday 13th September there will be a referendum on the Plan. All electors in the parish can vote in the referendum so make sure you participate in this important process. Whether you have been involved in consultation before now, or whether this is the first time you have seen the plan, you can have your say on the 13th September.
