A local referendum on the Longframlington Neighbourhood Plan will take place on Thursday 20th January 2022.
All residents of the parish of Longframlington who are registered to vote will be able to have a say on the Plan.
They will be asked: “Do you want Northumberland County Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Longframlington Neighbourhood Area to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
Northumberland County Council considers that the Plan meets the necessary legal requirements and is now ready to proceed to local referendum. This opinion was confirmed in the report of an Independent Examination of the Plan.
If a majority of residents who vote in the referendum are in favour of the plan it will be used to make decisions on planning applications in the parish of Longframlington.
Longframlington Parish Council has engaged with the community to produce the plan which addresses issues local people have identified as important in their local area.
The referendum will run in the same way as a local election, with all those eligible to vote having received a polling card, and those who vote by post should have now received their postal votes.
The poll will take place from 7am until 10pm on Thursday 20th January 2022 at Longframlington Memorial Hall, Rothbury Road, Longframlington, NE65 8AH.
