September 2012 Update

Since the Event in the Memorial Hall in August a group of volunteers have set up a the Ponteland Greenbelt Group its mission is to inform the local Community of the possibility of large scale development around Ponteland.

A small separate group has now been established to work on the second draft of the Town Council Local Plan.

I would ask residents to support our volunteers in their tasks ahead and we will keep you updated though this website.

Thank you for your support
