Referendum Date Set – Thursday 5th October

Neighbourhood Plan Update

Following the Independent Examiner’s review, it has been agreed that the Neighbourhood Plan can proceed to a public referendum.  This is the final stage of the Neighbourhood Plan process and it is now up to everyone who lives in the Parish to vote on whether they would like the Plan to come into force.

The date for the referendum is Thursday 5th October.  Voting will be held at the Parish Hall from 7 am – 10 pm.  New rules for voting in person have recently been introduced and voters will need to show photographic ID.

More information will be shared about the plan in the Parish Council’s newsletter which will be distributed shortly.  For now, if you would like further information please consult the County Council’s website – Neighbourhood Planning Page and view the documents by selecting “Broomhaugh & Riding”
