Petrol site progress

BUILDING work could start next month for a new hotel and petrol station on the outskirts of Alnwick.

Colin Barnes, development director for Northumberland Estates, said: “We are very optimistic that both projects will be proceeding in the near future.

“We are hoping to start building work next month.”

Both developments are to be sited at Cawledge Business Park, just across the A1 from the town, and the land is currently being cleared.

Discussions with operators for both developments are ongoing.
