Have your say on county’s Local Plan
The final phase of public involvement in a new Local Plan for the whole of Northumberland has started.
Residents, businesses, community and voluntary groups, town and parish town councils, and anyone with an interest in the future of Northumberland will be able to have their say.
Public consultation on this publication draft plan runs until March 13.
Unlike previous consultations, at this stage the council has to ask specific questions around whether the plan is ‘sound’, whether it is legal, whether it is an appropriate strategy and whether the council has worked with neighbouring authorities and other organisations to address strategic issues.
Drop-in events are being held at venues including: Belford, Bell View, Tuesday, February 12, 2pm-7pm; Berwick, William Elder Building, Thursday, February 14, 2pm-7pm; Wooler, Cheviot Centre, Monday, March 4, 2pm-7pm; Seahouses, Sports & Community Centre, Tuesday, March 5, 2pm-7pm.
