Voters can have their say on a local planning document that could guide decisions for the next 14 years.

The Stamford Neighbourhood Plan will set out guidelines for people who wish to build new properties or alter existing ones.

It also contains policies to enhance and protect the environment, character and heritage of the town, as well as sections on shopping, housing and sports, arts and leisure.

A referendum on the Stamford Neighbourhood Plan will be held on Thursday, July 14. Eligible voters will receive polling cards in the next few days.

The “yes/no” question will ask: “Do you want South Kesteven District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Stamford to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

Stamford First Neighbourhood Plan Group produced the document on behalf of Stamford Town Council by consulting with residents, businesses, landowners and other stakeholder organisations. If adopted it will be valid until 2036.
