Have your say on how to take ‘Belforwards’

Communities are using the county council’s consultation events on the final draft of the Core Strategy to share their local plans with residents.

While the Core Strategy is the county council’s plan for how the whole county should develop up to 2031, local areas can also develop Neighbourhood Plans.

The Belford group started work in the summer after a community discussion in February which decided that the parish council should investigate a Neighbourhood Plan.

The plan area will be the parish area covering both the village and the outlying rural areas, including some of the AONB, as well as the industrial estate.

There will be a drop-in session at Bell View from 2pm to 7pm on Thursday. The previous day (Wednesday) sees one at Seahouses Sports and Community Centre (2pm to 7pm).
