Section 6 of the Neighbourhood Planning (Referendums) Regulations 2012 specifies a limit on the amount that can be spent on campaigning for the referendum. This is calculated via the formula £2362 + (0.059*N), where N is a number of electors in the relevant register. By reference to this, the limit that will apply in relation to the Referendum is £2409.91.
