The people of Hixon have given a resounding 'thumbs up' to adopting the plan. 474 people voted (32.11% of the electorate). 451 voted YES; a massive 95.2% of the vote. 23 voted against the plan. The 32.11% turnout is the highest for any neighbourhood plan referendum in Stafford borough. The Hixon Neighbourhood Plan will now be enshrined in planning policy at Stafford Borough Council, meaning that all future planning applications will have to be considered against our plan. This will be a significant factor in deciding where development can take place. Essentially this will be within the tight new settlement boundary specified in the plan. There will also be a requirement for 20% bungalows and for better design. The industrial estate boundaries have also been tightly defined. The plan will also require future development to make a positive contribution to Hixon parish by way of improving provision of services and infrastructure.
