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.
