Otley votes yes in local referendum

A referendum was held in Otley on whether to adopt a Neighbourhood Plan.

  • A referendum is being held in Otley on Thursday on whether to adopt a Neighbourhood Plan. 
  • The Town Council campaigned for a 'yes' vote, with simliar votes taking place elsewhere in the country. 
  • It's hoped the plan will give local people more say on future building developments in the town.

Nearly 90% of people who voted said yes to adopting a Neighbourhood Plan.

The Town Council urged people to vote 'yes' to the proposals - which will give the town more say over local planning decisions in the future.    

The document will be officially adopted by Leeds City Council, who along with developers, will have to refer back to it with regards to future planning applications.    

The plan will not control numbers of new houses or the sites on which they are built, but will shape how new developments take place.
