Central Ealing Neighbourhood Plan – businesses must register to vote

Business ratepayers in central Ealing should recently have received from Ealing Council an invitation to register for a vote in the forthcoming referendum on the Central Ealing Neighbourhood Plan, which will take place on Thursday 12 October 2017.

 If you have not already replied, West London Business would like to encourage you to complete and return the registration form to the Council, and to cast your vote in due course.

Two ballots will take place in October, one for local residents and the other for business ratepayers. If a majority of both residents and businesses vote to accept it, the plan will become part of the statutory development plan for Central Ealing and will directly influence decisions on planning applications in the area. It is therefore important for the whole community. You can apply for a postal vote when registering.

There are more details on the Ealing Council web site at www.ealing.gov.uk/neighbourhoodplan, or at www.centralealingforum.com. For questions about registration, you can contact the Business Registration Officer at 020 8825 7777.
