Sid Valley residents have begun receiving their polling cards ahead of next month’s neighbourhood plan referendum.

Electorates will be able to vote on Thursday, September 19, on the Sid Valley Neighbourhood Plan, which has been created as a blueprint for developmentd in the area until 2032.

Residents will be asked to answer yes or no to the question, "Do you want East Devon District Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Sidmouth to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?".

Anyone unable to vote on the day can contact East Devon District Council to vote by proxy or postal vote.

The plan has been worked on by volunteers in the Sid Valley Neighbourhood Plan steering group for more than three years.
