Greenbelt is for more than Christmas

Greenbelt is for more than Christmas

Many thanks to the supporters who turned out yet again to deliver the information flyers to the residents of Ponteland, over 5,000 were distributed over this weekend.   Well done and thanks.

It is now up to all of us to respond to the Core Strategy document, use the information provided to create your own response to the County Council.

You have until the 2nd January 2014 and we appreciate that Christmas is nearly upon us but if we miss this opportunity to make our feelings known the housing numbers and other matters will be imposed on us.

This can’t be left until next year, we all have to act now.

Hand delivery to:  93 Cheviot View or 17 Darras Rd

Post to:      Spatial Policy and Delivery Team, Northumberland County  Council, County hall, Morpeth, Northumberland  NE61 2EF

E-mail to:   PlanningStrategy@northumberland.gov.uk

Let us show Northumberland County Council our strength in numbers and a legacy for the future beyond 2014.

Best Wishes from the Greenbelt Group

The Ponteland Greenbelt Group needs YOU

Next weekend Ponteland will receive information and guidance notes on how to respond to the Northumberland Core Strategy Stage 2 document.
The group realises that Christmas is nearly upon us but unless we all respond to this document now, Northumberland County Council will presume you are in agreement with 3 fundamental issues.

  • The erosion and deletion of part of the Greenbelt around Ponteland
  • An additional 850 houses
  • Massive impact on the unique characteristics of our village

Please take time out to have your say, before 2nd January and collectively we can make a difference to the future of Ponteland and the surrounding area for the next 20 years.
