An open workshop for the Wooler Neighbourhood Plan is to take place next Thursday.

This will focus on factors considered important by local people regarding the location of potential new homes and businesses in Wooler.

Site development is key to the sustainability of the community and is critical to help protect Wooler’s future.

Mark Mather, chairman of Wooler Parish Council, is seeking a big turnout for the workshop.

“We understand the importance of site development sensitive to the needs of our community, local economy, our landscape and heritage,” he said. “I encourage local people to get involved.”

Prior to next Thursday’s workshop, on Tuesday, residents are invited to learn how to film their stories of Wooler. The neighbourhood plan team is keen to see what the community thinks makes its landscapes and townscape unique and special.

Both events take place at 6.30pm in the Cheviot Centre. For more, contact Lynne Pringle on 01668 283488.
