At the West Area Planning Committee meeting at Hexham last night arrangements were made for the next step of the Lugano application for 280 houses at Birney Hill.
A site visit to Birney Hill for the Planning Committee Councillors on 7th Oct.
A provisional date for a public meeting is set for 9th Oct at Hexham Auction Mart. Due to the numbers of residents interested in this application it is likely that the numbers will not be able to be accommodated locally in Ponteland. In the meantime, Northumberland County Council will be seeking an alternative location, if possible in Ponteland.
A provisional date for a special meeting of the West Area Planning Committee to is to consider the Lugano application has been arranged for the 30th Oct.
The Case Officer will be keeping us updated on the arrangements and we will keep you informed.
