Whitburn Neighbourhood Plan

South Tyneside Council's Cabinet of 7 September 2022 has resolved that Whitburn Neighbourhood Plan be formally 'made' i.e. brought into legal force as part of the statutory Development Plan for South Tyneside.

This means that the Whitburn Neighbourhood Plan will be used to help decide planning applications in the Neighbourhood Area.
