The independent examination of the Bramham Neighbourhood Plan is complete, and the Examiner’s report concludes that, subject to modifications, the plan meets legal requirements and should proceed to referendum.


The referendum held on 14th February 2019 met the requirements of the Localism Act 2011; it was held in the Bramham Neighbourhood Area

and posed the question :-

‘Do you want Leeds City Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Bramham to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area ?’

The count took place on 15th February 2019 and greater then 50% of those who voted were in favour of the plan being used to help determine planning applications in the Neighbourhood

area. The results of the referendum were :

RESPONSE                                                              VOTES

YES                                                                            396 (93.4%)

NO                                                                               28 (6.6%)

TURNOUT                                                                  30.8%


A referendum on the neighbourhood plan will be held on Thursday 14 February 2019.

The Examiner recommended that the Referendum Area should be the Bramham Neighbourhood Area. The council considers that Referendum Plan (modified as set out in the Decision Statement) meets the Basic Conditions and agrees that the Referendum Area is the Bramham Neighbourhood Area.

The Referendum will be conducted in accordance with procedures which are similar to those used at local government elections.
