Arne Parish Neighbourhood Plan
07 May 2021
Arne Parish Neighbourhood Plan
On the 6th May, the Arne Neighbourhood Plan went to referendum. Many parishioners were involved in the production of the Plan or ontributed via public meetings, parish council meetings and surveys, and therefore know that this has been a very long and complicated process. It all began back in 2013 with a vision:
'Arne Parish has a unique natural environment formed by past cultural, economic, social, industrial and agricultural practices. While recognising and protecting its heritage, we seek to ensure the long-term sustainability and viability of the parish through environmental and economic measures that will develop the community and its charm, so that all its residents, young or old, will continue to live in a community were they feel safe, cared for and happy.'
We are very pleased to announce that over 500 residents turned out to vote on 6 May 2021 and the final count was 479 in favour and 36 against - 93% in favour. Of the 8 Neighbourhood Plan referendums being help throughout Dorset on the day, Arne had the highest turnout and the largest majority in favour. We would like to thank all those who voted in favour of the Plan for their support.
