The results of the referendum held in the Borough of Fareham about adopting a Titchfield Neighbourhood Plan are in.
Residents were asked to vote YES or NO to the question: ‘Do you want Fareham Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Titchfield to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’
The result was 241 (40%) voted YES and 363 (60%) voted NO.
As less than 50 per cent voted YES the Neighbourhood Plan will not be made part of the statutory Local Plan for the Fareham Borough. That is an end to the matter and the only way it could be reconsidered is if the Titchfield Neighbourhood Forum wanted to start again and produce a new neighbourhood plan.
The turnout for the referendum was 31%.
