Over the past few years Wetherby Town Council has been working with local community representatives and organisations to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan for the town.
Neighbourhood plans are prepared by local communities and help Leeds City Council to decide on planning applications.
They can also identify local projects which help to improve sustainability.
A referendum was held on 30th January when it was agreed by 1,973 votes to 281 that the Wetherby Neighbourhood Plan should be used by Leeds City Council to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area.
The turnout for the referendum was 24.26%
