Referendum – Newbiggin by the Sea Neighbourhood Plan
The county council considers that the Plan, as modified, meets the basic conditions as set out in paragraph 8(2) of Schedule 4B to the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and that the Plan complies with provisions made by or under sections 38A and 38B of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. Accordingly, the Plan may proceed to referendum. The county council is satisfied that the referendum area shall be the Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Neighbourhood Area which comprises the civil parish of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea.
The Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Neighbourhood Plan, as modified, will now proceed to a local referendum on 23 November 2023. The Plan will now be given significant weight in decision making.
