Haddenham residents will be given the opportunity to adopt or reject the Neighbourhood Plan on Thursday 16th July 2015 — that's a little over one month away.
The referendum will ask Haddenham residents this question:
Do you want Aylesbury Vale District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Haddenham to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?
A YES vote will mean that AVDC will be required to evaluate any planning applications to check that they are consistent with the collective preferences of Haddenham residents, as reflected in our Neighbourhood Plan.
A NO vote will mean that you reject the Neighbourhood Plan and that AVDC can make its own decisions without reference to the Plan.
Please be clear: we are not voting to accept or reject new housing in Haddenham — some growth of the village will happen in the coming years, irrespective of the referendum vote. This is a given.
Local democracy would be best served if the referendum achieves a high turnout, so that the preference of a large majority of Haddenham residents is reflected in the result.
Are you currently on the electoral role?
If yes, than you will automatically be sent a polling card and will be able to vote in the local referendum in the village hall on 16th July.
Are you travelling or will be away on holiday on 16th July?
If so, you might wish to apply for a postal vote. To find out how — click here.
Are you physically unable to get along to the village hall on 16th July?
Then you may choose to allow someone to vote on your behalf, using a 'proxy vote'. To find out how, click here.
A Yes4Haddenham campaign has been launched by a large group of Haddenham residents. To understand their views, visit the Y4H website
