The Neighbourhood Plan Referendum is approaching and it is vital that we take the chance to support it on the 12th March.
The Plan sets out where and how much development there should be around Badshot Lea up until 2032. It will give us some defense against further unwanted speculative development but it is not a guarantee, there will be some disappointments, as with the site off Green Lane/Monkton Lane near the cemetery.
However, it is important to understand that that was one battle lost but the war goes on. We are having a major influence on development around our village thanks to the Neighbourhood Plan and there is significant pressure for a lot more. Without the Plan those unwanted sites are much more likely get approval.
Be in no doubt that your YES vote on the 12th March is very important for the protection of our community over the coming years.
