After a long delay due to technicalities (which were out of the hands of the steering group), and a further period of consultation, the plan has now been passed on to Northumberland County Council. It will be checked and then independently assessed by an approved Examiner. We have been assured that the Examination process should be completed in April or May 2020.

Once it is finished there will be a referendum, where residents of the Parish will be asked to vote on the plan. The date of this referendum will be published by Northumberland County Council who will organise and manage the process.  Please look out for your ballot papers and make sure you vote for the plan, which is about looking after the future of the Parish of Wooler.

Northumberland County Council is carrying out a required Consultation on the documents we have submitted which runs for six weeks from 17 February 2020. Go to the webpage below and scroll down the list to parishes to reach the Wooler pages.
