Have your say

A public meeting is being held next week to discuss recent flooding in the West End of Tweedmouth.

Officers from Northumberland County Council and members of Berwick Town Council will be in attendance.

Residents will also be able to have their say.

Councillor Gregah Roughead initially called for the meeting after the River Tweed burst its banks and flooded some West End properties last month.

Councillor Alex Gibson then took up the baton and arranged the meeting.

Among those expected to attend are Andy Rutherford, the council’s head of highways and neighbourhood services and Trevor Dixon, flood coastal erosion risk manager.

Coun Gibson said: “They will have a site visit before going to the meeting where residents will be able to have their say and hopefully get the answers they’re looking for.”

The meeting is in Tweedmouth Bowling Club on Tuesday, March 4 at 6pm.
