TWO villages have voted through plans that will help shape their future.

East Meon and Liss residents went to the polls on Thursday to vote in referendums on neighbourhood plans, which set out policies for development and use of land.

Both plans were approved by voters.

Liss Neighbourhood Plan received 1,251 votes for and 177 votes against, with a turn out of 30 per cent.

East Meon Neighbourhood Plan received 303 votes for and 58 against, with a turn out of 37 per cent.

The plans include information on where new homes and offices should be built, what they should look like and what new community facilities are needed and where.

The referendums were run by East Hampshire District Council’s election team and held on November 9.
