Neighbourhood Plans proving popular! Canvey Island to take notice?

Neighbourhood planning progress report.

This month there was a bumper crop of 17 Neighbourhood Plan Referendums including one for St Ives and one for the town of Newport Pagnall in Buckinghamshire which saw a yes vote of 83 per cent on a turn-out of 34.4 per cent. Nearly 12,000 residents were entitled to vote.

Meanwhile some 47 neighbourhood plan referendums took place between January and April 2016 including one for Compton Bassett in Wiltshire which had a very healthy 94 per cent ‘yes’ vote on a 57 per cent turnout.

Has the opportunity for a Canvey Island neighbourhood plan been missed?
