Stratfield Mortimer Neighbourhood Plan

The decision to put the neighbourhood plan to a referendum was approved by West Berkshire Council when it met on Tuesday evening (9 May). Regulations require the referendum to be held no sooner than 28 business days after the decision to go to referendum so it has not been possible to hold it on the same day as the general election.

Anyone living in the parish of Stratfield Mortimer and who is not registered to vote has until Tuesday 6 June to register if they want to take part in the referendum. You can register to vote at: Register To Vote
