A way to share decisions on new homes with the community
At the elections on 6 May, those eligible to vote in the Hexham parish were asked if they want Northumberland County Council to use the Hexham Neighbourhood Plan to help to decide planning applications in the area in the future.
Of the votes recorded:
3,603 voted YES
702 voted NO
The Hexham Neighbourhood Plan will now be formally ‘made’ by the county council, and become part of the statutory development plan for Northumberland.
The Declaration of Result for the Hexham Neighbourhood Plan can be viewed here.
For more details on the Plan itself see the Hexham Neighbourhood Plan website.
