Goudhurst Neighbourhood Development Plan referendum result

A referendum on Goudhurst’s Neighbourhood Development Plan was held on 3rd February 2022, giving residents the chance to approve or decline the document, which will give guidance on future planning decisions in the parish.
The referendum showed overwhelming support for the Neighbourhood Plan on a low turnout of 25%, with 525 of 570 residents voting in favour.
The plan therefore becomes legally binding as a statutory Development Plan.
