At last, the gloom that hung over Morpeth seems to be lifting. The news that some of us worked for, and many others hoped for, has now been received – the Secretary of State has called in the planning applications for the County Hall site. We can now build on our objections and know that our arguments will be heard and considered with care and impartiality; something sadly lacking in the County Council. What will be, will be, but we now have an opportunity at Public Inquiry to do our utmost to ensure that our Neighbourhood Plan is upheld.

Well done and thank you to Morpeth. What a team this town became.

There is lots of preparation work to do, but this Town Councillor is ready and willing to work with others to take it on. Prepare for battle!
