Value of Scottish trade noted
The benefit of the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh employment markets are set to be included in a revised Northumberland Local Plan core strategy.
The modification is being proposed at the request of Berwick Town Council.
Cllr Eric Goodyer said: “It’s good news that they have now recognised that a fair part of north Northumberland actually borders Scotland and that trade with the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh is very important.”
The previous draft of the core strategy highlighted the importance of the Tyneside area to Northumberland.
