The extensive list of ideas gathered by the Great Performing Rope, as well as the Youth Charter, will be added to the comments, which will now be analysed.

The purpose was to identify the key issues that the Neighbourhood Plan should examine. Visitors were also able to identify sites within the plan area that are either ‘problem areas’ or ‘opportunities’. Once the key issues are agreed by the town council, working groups will be established to examine each topic in detail, and to develop draft planning policies to help deliver the objectives.

Councillor Eric Goodyer, steering group chairman said: “This is a great start, but now the hard work begins to develop the polices that will make Berwick, Spittal and Tweedmouth great places to live in, and to attract investment.”
