Neighbourhood plan

A way to share decisions on new homes with the community

Neighbourhood Plan

The town wide referendum for a Hexham Neighbourhood Plan scheduled for 23 April 2020 had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Once the new date is known, this page will be updated. The Plan sets out a vision for the town that reflects the views of local people with a real interest in their community. Once the Plan has been made any new development that requires planning permission must be assessed against the policies in the Neighbourhood Plan and it will be part of the statutory development plan for the area. For more details see the Hexham Neighbourhood Plan website.
