Thousands of residents voted to have their say on future developments in Croxley Green in the parish council’s Neighbourhood Plan on Thursday, 6th December.
Over 3,000 residents voted in the referendum so councillors could decide where new housing developments could be built on.
The turnout of Croxley Green was at 25 per cent and of that figure, 93 per cent of residents voted in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan.
Now the plan is approved the council has control over the heritage of the village. They will be able to conserve the local character and protect it from unsustainable developments. The plan will also support and retain the use of the community building and other facilities.
Chairman, Mark Saxon, said in a Tweet: “My heartfelt thanks to all involved in this project. To our councillors, ex councillors, council staff and all our community groups and of course the voters of Croxley. Over 25 per cent turn out is a fantastic result.”
Councillor Emily Benner said on Twitter: “Absolutely fantastic news to start the weekend! Excited for an incredible future for #CroxleyGreen and pleased to have had such a majority vote. Well done to all involved over the last five years to get to this stage #proud”
