A public referendum on whether to approve the Holt Neighbourhood Development Plan will take place on Thursday, 29 June.

The referendum will be held at Holt Methodist Church, Norwich Road, Holt, with voting open between 7am and 10pm. Please note that the Holt Methodist Church has limited parking; however, additional public parking is available on Kerridge Way.

Holt residents eligible to vote will receive polling cards in the post with the full election details. Voters who attend the referendum will be asked: “Do you want North Norfolk District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Holt to help it decide planning applications in the Neighbourhood Area?”

Once the public vote has been counted, and if more than 50% of individuals vote ‘yes’, the Council will formally adopt the Holt Neighbourhood Plan.

If the Holt Neighbourhood Plan is approved, it will help determine future planning applications in the Neighbourhood Plan Area and form part of the statutory Development Plan for North Norfolk.
