June referendum date for Haydon Parish Neighbourhood Plan 

A local referendum on the Haydon Parish Neighbourhood Plan will take place on Thursday 30 June 2022 and all residents in Haydon Parish who are registered to vote will be able to have a say on the Plan.
Haydon Parish Council has engaged with the community to produce the Plan which addresses issues local people have identified as important in their area. It passed an independent examination in March 2022. 

Residents will be asked whether they want Northumberland County Council and Northumberland National Park Authority to use the Plan in future to help decide planning applications in the area in the Parish of Haydon. 

If the majority of residents vote in favour of bringing the Plan into force it will be used to make decisions on planning applications in the area. 
The referendum will run in the same way as a local election, with all those eligible to vote receiving a polling card, and the options of postal and proxy voting being available to those who are registered.  The poll will take place from 7am until 10pm on Thursday 30 June 2022, and people will find details of which polling station to attend on their polling card.
