Haddenham and Aldreth Neighbourhood Plan

Referendum Set for 29 September 2022

An Independent Examiner has concluded that the Haddenham and Aldreth Neighbourhood Plan is suitable to be put to a referendum, provided some modifications to the Plan are made. East Cambridgeshire District Council, in consultation with Haddenham Parish Council, has accepted the Examiner's recommendations, and have agreed to hold a referendum giving local people the opportunity to vote on whether the Haddenham and Aldreth Neighbourhood Plan (Referendum Version - September 2022) should be used when determining planning applications. The Examiner's report and the Council's decision notice can be found in the table below. 

Further information on the referendum to take place can be found via Elections. The referendum date is set as being 29 September 2022.

After the referendum has taken place, this webpage will be updated to set out the next steps.
