Woodland Champions Club, on behalf of landowner Jamie Hope, is consulting Northumberland County Council on a proposal for use of a site off Weetwood Road.

It has an exemption certificate issued by Natural England which enables it to approve sites for members to stay at, by issuing certificates to landowners.

The certificate would be valid for one year and would allow up to five caravans and 10 tent pitches on land to the north of the sewage disposal works.
