Latest Position  (28/03/2018

At the meeting of HDC's cabinet this week there was an overwhelming vote in favour for Houghton and Wyton's Neighbourhood Plan and it was therefore "made". It is now a statutory document and can be used to support local planning decisions.


Below is the text of the result of the Referendum
