Pushing on with plan for coastal villages

Nearly 70 residents of Bamburgh, Seahouses and Beadnell attended the recent Shaping the Future event hosted by the North Northumberland Coastal Area Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.

They heard more about the progress of the proposed neighbourhood plan for the area and had an opportunity to discuss the results of recent research.

Since the launch in January, a lot of work has been done to identify the issues and opportunities where a planning policy could improve the villages, particularly to do with the scale and types of new housing development and the need to identify employment sites.

Individual surveys targeting businesses, holiday-home owners, and young people have already been circulated and a survey of all residents is being distributed.
