A referendum on the Ailsworth Neighbourhood Plan was held on Thursday 2 November 2017.
The Ailsworth Neighbourhood Plan featured a question requiring a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ decision by those voting, specifically:
“Do you want Peterborough City Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for the Ailsworth Neighbourhood Area to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
The number of votes cast in favour of a 'YES' was 301
The number of votes cast in favour of a 'NO' was 6
As more than 50 per cent of those that voted chose ‘yes’, the plan will go to the city council meeting on Wednesday 13 December 2017 to be made part of the development plan for the area.
