Bawtry Neighbourhood Planning Referendum

A Referendum relating to the adoption of the Bawtry Neighbourhood Plan will be held on Thursday 12th September 2019. If you are already registered to vote in local elections and live in the Bawtry area, you will be eligible to vote in this Referendum.

The Referendum will be conducted in accordance with procedures which are similar to those used at local government elections.


How to vote

The question which will be asked in the Referendum is:

Do you want Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Bawtry to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?

A Poll Card will be delivered to all registered electors of the Bawtry Neighbourhood Plan area around 16th August 2019, therefore if you do not receive a poll card it could mean that you may not be on the register. Make sure you register to vote by Tuesday 27th August 2019. Please check your poll card for your usual polling station or visit our Find my Polling Station link for directions.

The deadline for applying for or changing a postal vote is 5.00pm on Wednesday 28th August 2019.
