On 6 May 2021 the referendum on the Gainsborough Town Neighbourhood Plan was held. Residents voted in favour of West Lindsey District Council using the neighbourhood plan to help it determine planning applications in Gainsborough. As it has been successful at referendum the Gainsborough Town Neighbourhood Plan should now be given full weight in such decision making.
For more details on the referendum result see the Council’s By-Elections and Neighbourhood Planning Referendums webpage.
The referendum result is to be reported to the Full Council of West Lindsey District Council in the near future with a view to the Gainsborough Town Neighbourhood Plan being made as part of the development plan for the parish area.
