Close run thing for Lichfield’s Neighbourhood Plan. What can we expect for Burntwood?

Lichfield City residents were clearly divided last week over their Neighbourhood Plan (NP) with one of the closest results ever seen  for a Neighbourhood Plan.  Most referendums result in a 90% vote in favour, unsurprisingly as the NP is the result of numerous consultation events, with 84% minimum support – until now.

Only 57% voted in favour in Lichfield with 43% against with the lowest turnout for a NP in the district.

Lichfield NPHow will Burntwood’s Neighbourhood Plan be received – if it ever gets to the stage where it can be presented to residents in a referendum?

Other Plans in Lichfield District followed the normal experience in other parts of the country.
