The vote will take place on Thursday 30th January 2020 and all residents of the parish of Cramlington who are registered to vote will be able to have a say on the plan. Cramlington is the tenth neighbourhood plan in Northumberland to successfully pass independent examination. If a majority of residents who vote in the referendum are in favour of the plan it will be used to make decisions on planning applications in the parish of Cramlington.
The Uniformed Services and Associated Group Organisations Fund (USAGOF), which has been approved by the Council’s Cabinet, is aimed at Northumberland organisations who can provide evidence that they “sustain opportunities for engagement and volunteering as part of an established programme to benefit local communities”. The Fund is initially £25,000 and successful applicants could get up to £1,000 each.Find out more
