Neighbourhood Plan Referendum
Forget about Brexit for a moment. You will have or be about to receive voting cards for the Neighbourhood Plan Referendum. This is the most important referendum for our village.
In the consultations with villagers going on for some years. We asked you what you wanted and distilled it into a formal document called ‘ A Neighbourhood Plan.’ (referred to as NP)
The Neighbourhood Plan itself is a 64 Page very comprehensive document. Its format and length are to enable it to pass the necessary steps for it to be put to the Referendum. We have done a precis of the main points below.
Our Neighbourhood Plan (NP) Referendum takes place on 31st January 2019. Details of how to cast your vote will be on the notice you receive.
The Referendum question is simple :-
‘Do you want Newark and Sherwood District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Kings Clipstone to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’
You will make your own minds up about this but this is what a neighbourhood plan is all about.
A ‘Yes’ vote is voting to give Kings Clipstone residents a greater say in the future of our village. Only by a majority vote of ‘Yes’ will our N.P. be adopted. It’s your village and your future. Your vote counts.
A hard copy can be viewed at the NSDC Offices or we will loan you a hard copy of the document if you contact us via our Clerk at :-

About The Parish
With 108 homes in the village core and another 34 in the outlying hamlets, the adult population is currently around 280. This is not a lot different to the population of 241 recorded in 1901.
History of Kings Clipstone
Kings Clipstone is recorded in the Doomsday book as Clipstone. It was Edward I who bestowed the Kingly part of its name after Parliament was held at the Palace in 1290.
The Clipstone Lordship was originally a separate area of Edwinstowe Parish. It became a parish in its own right after the development in the 1920s of Clipstone Village(New Clipstone) to house miners for the new pit. In April 2011 two new parishes were created with the more rural parts of the parish forming the new Kings Clipstone Council.
