The latest Draft Core strategy from NCC has been released
Two immediate headlines.
1) The housing allocation for Ponteland has been increased to 900 – remember thats minimum! Far greater than has been suggested in any other previous Core Strategy document or in any NCC so called “consultation’ events.
2 ) Ponteland has been re designated as a Main Town from being listed previously as a Service Centre – This is no doubt an attempt to justify the vast increase in housing allocation.
We will give further information once we have had time to digest the document.
The document can be found at. NCC Draft Core Strategy Sept 2015
