REFERENDUM about NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

All residents on the electoral roll in Beadnell, Seahouses and Bamburgh are eligible to vote.
Northumberland Gazette (10/05/18) on page 5 under the headline - Coastal plan going out to referendum - Andy Brown of Beadnell Under Threat is quoted as saying:
"The crucial elements of our Neighbourhood Plan, that will preserve the integrity of our coastal communities, are the designated Settlement Boundaries and Policy 14 to ensure permanent occupancy of all new-builds. A "Yes" vote in the Referendum would not only effect a positive outcome to planning regulations but also demonstrate a united front against the march of the developers."
The leading article of the same Gazette also deals with "The scourge of second homes along the coastline"
and on page 5 the theme continues with "Village survey reveals extent of holiday lets".
The North Northumberland Coast Neighbourhood Plan (NNCNP) is our best defence until 2032, so persuade everyone you know in all three communities to vote "YES"
• SETTLEMENT BOUNDARIES
• PERMANENT OCCUPANCY FOR NEW-BUILDS
• HALT TO HOLIDAY DEVELOPMENTS
• POSITIVE CHANGES TO PLANNING REGULATIONS
• PROTECT INTEGRITY OF VILLAGES
