The Dalston Parish Neighbourhood Plan Referendum was held on Thursday, 22 February 2018.
Anyone who is entitled and registered to vote in the Parish was able to vote in the referendum which sought to establish public support for making the Plan part of Carlisle City Council’s planning policy for the area. It would then be used to help make decisions on proposed developments within the Parish.
Should more than 50% of people be in favour of the City Council adopting the plan, then it will be officially adopted into local planning policy.
The question was: Do you want Carlisle City Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Dalston Parish to help it decide planning applications in the Dalston Parish Council area?
Of the 2,241 eligible voters, 585 votes were cast - 26% turnout.
The number of votes cast - Yes - 513 (87.7%).
The number of votes cast - No - 72 (12.3%).
