Standish Voice is the neighbourhood forum for the purpose of of preparing a neighbourhood plan for Standish.
The forum was formally designated as ‘Standish Voice’ by the Cabinet on 14 May 2015. Following this decision no other organisation or body may be designated for the neighbourhood area until the designation expires or is withdrawn.
Standish Voice consulted on the Initial Draft of the Standish Neighbourhood Plan (pre-submission draft) from 29th September 2017 until 10th November 2018.
The revised draft was submitted to the council in October 2018.
Following the consultation, all comments will be sent directly to an independent examiner who will assess the plan taking all comments submitted into account. The examiner will provide a report to Wigan Council and Standish Voice making recommendations on the plan and stating whether the plan may proceed to referendum.
Once this decision and any amendments have been made a referendum will be held in Standish where you can vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the plan becoming part of the development plan for the borough.
