Still to come…..

We await with interest the outcome of the independent examination of the plan. If it passes the examination process we expect that a referendum will be held later in 2021.

The simple question on the referendum ballot will be:

“Do you want South Tyneside Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for East Boldon to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

The plan will pass if a there is a simple majority of those voting in support of the plan.

Remember it is the Neighbourhood Plan and not the council’s Local Plan that will be voted on.
