Ponteland Wake up Call

Ponteland this is your ‘Wake Up Call’

Hands off our Greenbelt !!!!!!

Now the gloves are off and the consultation process begins. Northumberland County Council have notified residents of the outline planning application  13/00132/OUTES click here
The appropriate advertisement has been put in place  locally and a public notice in the newspaper for the development of 280 houses at Birney Hill Farm.
You need to ACT NOW, don’t wait, or leave it to others. HAVE YOUR SAY
Watch out for our information pack which is being delivered as you read this, over the next couple of days.
There is a quick objection letter and plenty of information for those who wish to personalise their replies. Download extra copies for everyone in the household, that includes children of any age. 
Use the envelope which has been provided, pre labelled, either post or we have two addresses: 93 Cheviot View and 17 Darras Road that will accept your envelope and will deliver them, by the deadline to County Hall, Morpeth.
Don’t think this proposed development is NOT going to affect you, it won’t matter where you live in Ponteland, it will have an adverse impact on your day to day life. If it is concreted over, that is it-it’s gone forever! and don’t think it stops there the door will be wide open for other speculative developers to follow
Take Note this is an Outline Application for 280 houses on the Birney Hill identified site the layout was an example of where the houses “could be built”
The Community needs to come together and respond before it is too late

Deadline 11th March
