Wooler Cheviot Centre

Have your say

Glendale residents are being asked to give their views to help set priorities for the support of rural life in the area from 2015 to 2020.

The Northumberland Uplands LEADER Local Action Group (NULAG) has begun preparing a new Local Development Strategy and wants to make sure that it meets the needs and aspirations of local communities and businesses.

Researchers will be at the Cheviot Centre in Wooler on Wednesday, May 28 from 2pm to 7pm with a short survey inviting residents to give their thoughts and ideas - and enjoy a free coffee and cake!

NULAG want to hear your views on whether support should be going to such things as farming; new rural businesses and youth employment opportunities, or if our funding should be directed towards other things important to the community.

Chairman Dagmar Winter said: “We are not only interested in what we can get European Funding for or what the councils think should happen.

“The strategy should say what local people think should be the future of their rural place and life. It needs to be shared by everyone and then we can all work together to make it happen.”

NULAG has teamed up with other key partners including Northumberland National Park Authority, Northumberland County Council and Newcastle University to work on developing this strategy which will be submitted to DEFRA in September.
