Our Local Referendum

Home » News » Our Local Referendum

The local referendum is a very important matter for Haddenham and its outcome will impact the growth and development of the village for up to 18 years ahead. So it is crucial that residents are able to vote confidently, knowing that they have a good grasp of the key issues.

Please do be aware that some growth of Haddenham is inevitable over the next 18 years. We need to accommodate some new homes to help reduce the serious housing shortage at a national level.

Voting NO does not mean "no new housing".

Voting NO in the referendum means that you do not accept the Neighbourhood Plan.

And with no Neighbourhood Plan in place, AVDC councillors will have more scope to make planning decisions for the village as they so choose.

Voting YES means that you accept the Neighbourhood Plan, which has been constructed by consultation with Haddenham residents over the last two years through a process led by the Parish Council with assistance from Haddenham Village Society and local residents.

A YES vote means that AVDC planners will need to refer to Haddenham's Neighbourhood Plan before finalising its planning decisions in relation to our village.

The full version of the Neighbourhood Plan can be read by clicking on the PDF located below the image on this webpage. Alternatively, paper copies are available in the Parish Council office (located at the South-East corner of the village hall, nearest to the royal mail post box) or in the Community Library.

A summary of the Neighbourhood Plan can be viewed here.
