Chesil Bank Neighbourhood Plan referendum result

The Chesil Bank Neighbourhood Plan referendum was held on Thursday 28 September 2023 and asked residents: “Do you want Dorset Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Chesil Bank to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?” From an electorate of 1129 there was a turnout of 224 (19.8%). The result: In Favour. YES votes 167 (75.2%) and NO votes 55 (24.7%). The full referendum results are also now available.

The plan will now proceed to Cabinet on 7 November 2023 where a decision will be made on making the Chesil Bank Neighbourhood Plan part of the development plan for the Chesil Bank parish area.

Thank you to the members of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering group for all their hard work over the last 5 years, to the planning consultant who supported us throughout this process, Dorset Council Neighbourhood Planning team and to you the Chesil Bank Community as without your input there would not be a plan.
Again, thank you!
