Hemswell Cliff Neighbourhood Plan

Hemswell Cliff Neighbourhood Plan has reached referendum stage. The examination of the plan was carried out by an independent examiner in spring 2023. Subject to a series of recommended modifications set out in their report the examiner concluded that the examination of the Hemswell Cliff Neighbourhood Plan had been successful, and the plan should proceed to referendum.

Hemswell Cliff Parish Council and West Lindsey District Council have agreed that the examiner’s recommended modifications be accepted and included in the Neighbourhood Plan for it to proceed to a public referendum. The referendum is to be held in the parish of Hemswell Cliff on 19 October 2023.

National planning guidance advises that where a decision statement has been made detailing the intention to send a neighbourhood plan to referendum, such as for the Hemswell Cliff Neighbourhood Plan, that plan can be given significant weight in planning decision-making, so far as the plan is material to the application.

In advance of the referendum, this page and our by-elections and referendums will be updated to include more information and latest documents in relation to the referendum.
