Cllr Gordon Castle, Alnwick ward member, said: “I initiated this request at least two years ago but we now have a final action plan, subject to consultation and final sign off.

"I'm in favour of what is proposed as it frees up much needed parking space seldom used for taxis whose interests are not forgotten between 1800 - 0600 hrs.

Comments on the proposal can be made via email to: [email protected] before November 7.
