The Council must then consider the Examiner’s report and make a decision on whether to put the Plan to public Referendum or refuse the Plan. If agreed, the Council will arrange a Referendum. If more than 50% of the votes at the Referendum are in favour of the Plan it will form part of Stafford Borough’s local development plan.
