RESIDENTS in Barnham, Eastergate and Felpham have gone to the polls to have their say on the futures of their villages.
The polling stations opened today at 7am (Wednesday, July 2) so residents could cast their vote in the referendums on whether to accept the joint Barnham and Eastergate Neighbourhood Plan and the Felpham Neighbourhood Plan.
Polling stations will close at 10pm.
Both plans set out a vision for the areas as decided by a volunteer groups made-up of councillors and residents, based on extensive consultation over two years.
The documents feature policies for the next 15 years to support shops and businesses, deal with flooding, and keep the character of the villages.
The results are due to be declared later tonight.
