The Stratford Society was closely involved at every stage over a seven-year period 2011-2018 in the formulation of the Neighbourhood Development Plan. This involved many cycles of discussion with the Town Council and District Council and several public consultations.
In November 2018, voters in a referendum in Stratford-upon-Avon voted 'yes' to the Neighbourhood Development Plan, with an overwhelming majority of 91% in favour.
The Policies set out in the NDP have the force of law and are used by the SDC in making planning decisions.
