THE ROSELAND PLAN
Roseland voters are advised that a referendum on the local Neighbourhood Plan will be held on Thursday 20 August 2015, from 7am to 10pm.
The question to be asked of voters at the referendum is: “Do you want Cornwall Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for the Roseland to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
A Notice of Referendum and more information has been published on the current and forthcoming elections and referendums page of the Cornwall Council website at www.cornwall.gov.uk/elections.
The Referendum will be conducted following similar procedures to those used at local government elections. Poll cards were sent out on 24th July to voters registered in the neighbourhood plan area, which covers the parishes of Gerrans, Philleigh, Ruan Lanihorne, St Just in Roseland and Veryan.
Anyone who is not already registered can apply to register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. Anyone who wishes to vote by post or proxy must apply in writing. Please note the following deadlines:
