Villagers are being urged to vote in next month’s referendum.

Claverham’s electorate will go to the polls to decide whether the proposed neighbourhood plan is adopted.

It sets out ideas about housing and community identity and can be read on Claverham Future’s website or a paper copy picked up from Yatton Library.

The committee’s chairman Nigel Cooper said: “It really is important everyone comes and votes.

“We believe the plan is the best way to safeguard the village until 2026.”

People will be able to cast their vote into the ballot box at Claverham Village Hall from 7am-10pm on January 18.

The deadline to apply for a postal vote from the electoral registration officer at Weston Town Hall is January 3.
