Town Council Withdraw Agenda Item

Yesterday the Town Council decided to withdraw an item on the agenda for discussion by Councillors.

Lugano, developers, had requested through Northumberland County Council a scoping opinion from the Town Council Committee. This request is part of the normal planning procedure for large scale developments. This Committee decided they needed an extension of time to seek advice before discussing this issue.

Even though residents through the Greenbelt Group were advised that this item would not be discussed approx 60 people, including dogs and pushchairs, gathered outside the building where the Council Office is located, to show their strength of feeling.

I would like to take this opportunity in thanking all the residents who came together and shared the glorious morning sunshine and the atmosphere of solidarity.

I can reassure you we will notify you of when and where this item is to be discussed in the next few weeks.

The Greenbelt Group thanks you for your orders for the signs, as displayed in Cheviot View, and your generous donations for the Campaign.

Chair of the Greenbelt Group
