View towards Tiverton Town Hall, Fore StreetA Neighbourhood Plan that will influence future development in Tiverton parish will go to a local referendum on Thursday 17 November 2022.

The Neighbourhood Plan which has been subject to extensive community consultations and independent examination has been prepared by Tiverton Town Council and its Neighbourhood Planning group.

The referendum will provide all eligible residents with an opportunity to vote on the Neighbourhood Plan. If the majority vote in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan and Mid Devon District Council then adopt the plan, it must then be considered by Mid Devon District Council when making decisions on planning applications in the Tiverton parish.

A person is able to vote in the referendum if, on 17 November 2022, they are entitled to vote in a local government election and their qualifying address for the election is in the Tiverton parish. Each entitled voter will be sent a referendum poll card.

All information relating to the referendum, including a map of the referendum area, is available to view online.

The polling stations will be as follows:

  1. Bolham Primary School
  2. Chevithorne Village Hall
  3. Cove Village Hall
  4. Heathcoat Community Centre, Tiverton
  5. Mid Devon Indoor Bowls Centre, Tiverton
  6. Moorhayes Community Centre, Tiverton
  7. St George’s Church Extension, Tiverton
  8. Sunningmead Community Centre, Tiverton
  9. The Signpost Club, Tiverton Market
  10. William Authers Hall, Tiverton Adventure Playground
  11. Withleigh Village Hall

Once adopted, Neighbourhood Plans are key documents with a legal status which influence the shape and development of the areas they cover over many years. As such we encourage all residents eligible to vote in the referendum to check to ensure they are registered, and therefore able to vote on the day.
