Friday November 02, 2018 Hilperton referendum result.

The Neighbourhood Plan referendum result was declared late yesterday.

The result was a very firm 'Yes' vote.

There was a very good turnout of 30.9% with 964 'Yes' votes, 92 'No' votes, with 3 rejected papers.

This is a major step forward for the parish but, with the Trowbridge area needing another 4,000+ houses over the next few years, there is still work to be done.

My congratulations go to the members of the steering group who saw this plan through so quickly.  The first public meeting at the village hall was under three years ago and most plans take at least five or six years to complete.  To see this through in under three years was a magnificent job and must have seen many, many hours spent on the task.

I would love to hear from those who voted 'No' as to what they did not like about the plan.
