A public consultation event is being held next week to give people the chance to have their say on housing plans in a north Northumberland village.

The county council is proposing to build around 12 affordable homes on part of the former quarry site in Embleton.

Fallodon Estate is also lining up a residential development on land to the north of Woodstead, for approximately 30 to 35 properties, which would be a mix of affordable and private.

A joint consultation event is taking place on Wednesday between 3pm and 7pm at the village’s Creighton Hall.

Representatives from the county council and Fairhurst, acting as planning consultants for Fallodon Estate’s proposed development, will be available at the drop-in session to discuss the proposals.

Information will also be on the Fairhurst Public Consultation web page from Wednesday.

Following the event, the final design for the Fallodon Estate site will be developed and all responses will be reported in a statement of community involvement to be submitted to the planning department with the outline application.

Those behind the schemes say they will provide the opportunity to deliver much-needed homes that can be both open market and affordable, helping to sustain existing services and provide the chance to deliver improved community facilities.
