Gainsborough Town Neighbourhood Plan

Gainsborough Neighbourhood Plan has reached referendum stage. The examination of the plan was carried out by an independent examiner in December/January 2021. Subject to a series of recommended modifications set out in their report (see below) the examiner concluded that the examination of the Gainsborough Neighbourhood Plan had been successful and the plan should proceed to referendum.

West Lindsey District Council has agreed with Gainsborough Town Council that all of the examiner’s recommended modifications be accepted and included in the Neighbourhood Plan in order for it to proceed to public referendum (see below). The final referendum version of the plan is available below. The referendum is to be held on 6 May 2021.

Prior to the referendum date more details about the referendum will be made available on the council’s By-Elections and Neighbourhood Planning Referendums webpage.
