The Watlington Neighbourhood Development Plan has been evolving over the past four years and the time for you to vote is fast approaching

Say 'YES'  - When it matters most!

REFERENDUM RULES

The rules for the campaign are very strict and are set by the Electoral Commission.The Parish Council is not allowed to campaign for a ‘Yes’ vote at the referendum but has to remain neutral even though it initiated the WNDP and is the official ‘accountable body’ for it. Members of the parish council can join the campaign as individuals but not as councillors

The Watlington Neighbourhood Development Plan Forum was set up by the parish council and reports directly to it so members of the Forum Coordination Group are also not allowed to be part of the campaign as members of the Forum but can join the campaign as individuals

No public money can be spent on the campaign and campaign posters etc cannot be displayed on public buildings or street furniture. As a result of these regulations, the WatYES campaign has had to raise funds to pay for all the campaign materials including the leaflet, event posters etc.


New houses are needed to satisfy demand for all sectors of the community from young couples and growing families to more elderly, as well as catering for those wishing to move into our special town and join our community in the future. The Watlington Neighbourhood Plan has paid heed to the consultations and a housing survey and we think will deliver what is needed and what is wanted
