Stamping on our NP

The local referendum is now just one day away, and much rides on its outcome. One development company in particular has major commercial interests which could be undermined if Haddenham residents vote YES to accept the Neighbourhood Plan and that company seems to have been actively involved in encouraging a NO vote.

The Neighbourhood Plan was constructed by Haddenham Parish Council with significant input from the Haddenham Village Society and a number of additional local residents — all volunteers looking to help the village community have more say over the future development and growth of Haddenham. The Plan was based on consultations with Haddenham residents over the last two years.

Misinformation in various forms has been circulating in the village. Before you draw your own conclusions, please ask yourself who might have generated the materials you are reading and what are their overriding agendas.

The editor of this website has complete faith in the integrity and competence of the local team of residents who helped to compile our Neighbourhood Plan. He wishes to see Haddenham residents have a say in the shape and scale of future development of their village, as provided by the Plan. He will not be influenced by well oiled PR machines, backed by faceless and remote development companies, whose only real focus is on building shareholder value through profit maximisation.

Your website editor will therefore be voting YES in tomorrow's referendum and invites his fellow residents to do likewise — for the good of the village overall.
