Bridge Refurbishment

Just a reminder that the engineers are keeping a blog with interesting information and photos about what's happening with the bridge refurbishment.
If nothing else, the blog clearly outlines just how involved and thorough the job is.

Parish News - January 2015

Following our January meeting the next parish Council meeting will be on March 19th as there is no meeting in February.
By then, the Councillors will have submitted a response to the Local Development Plan (Northumberland County Council) and attended meetings and/or roadshows in connection with it.

At the time of writing this, no decision has yet been made regarding the interactive unit on Castle View as costs are still awaited. However, County Council have confirmed that the 30mph speed limit sign cannot be moved further down the hill in the direction of Wylam as it does not meet their criteria for relocation. It is hoped a site meeting with Highways Department will confirm that the interactive unit can be moved.

Northumberland County Council have also been contacted and asked that grass protection mesh can be considered as a possibility (to protect the grass verges) on Horsley Road if tarmac is considered too expensive in widening the drives to ease parking.
