Stage 4 – Local Referendum

4. Local Referendum

Following the Independent Examination stage, the plan will go forward to a referendum of local electors to be held on Thursday 6th July 2017.

The question that will be asked is as follows:

“Do you want Milton Keynes Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Olney to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

People on the electoral register in the parish of Olney will be entitled to vote in the referendum. If more than 50% of those voting in the referendum vote ‘yes’, then Milton Keynes Council is required to bring the plan into force.
