Formal ‘making’ of the Haydon Parish Neighbourhood Plan
Following the successful referendum, the Haydon Parish Neighbourhood Plan was formally ‘made’ at a meeting of the National Park Authority on 23rd September 2022.
Now that the neighbourhood plan is formally ‘made’, it becomes part of the statutory development plan. Consequently, decisions on whether or not to grant planning permission in the Haydon Neighbourhood Area will need to be made in accordance with the plan, unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
A decision statement confirming that the Plan has been made and brought into legal force has now been published. This is available via the link below:

Northumberland National Park Authority (NNPA) has designated the Haydon Parish Neighbourhood Area for the purposes of Neighbourhood Planning under Section 61G(1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended). The preparation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan will be steered by Haydon Parish Council.
The Authority’s decision only relates to the part of the Neighbourhood Area which is within the National Park boundary. The remaining part of the Neighbourhood Area lies within the administrative area of Northumberland County Council and the decision to designate that part of the area has been made by that Authority.
