Help shape the future of town

Residents are being invited to share their views on where development should take place and which areas they would like to see protected.

Cramlington Town Council is inviting local residents to attend a consultation event on the Neighbourhood Plan on Wednesday, February 25, from 6pm to 8pm, in the Digital Youth Offices at Manor Walks.

Neighbourhood planning is designed to give communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.

The council is also asking people who live or work in Cramlington to apply to join the newly established Audit Panel.

The panel will be independent of the council and will scrutinise its annual accounts and spending proposals and advise the council of its views before any decisions are taken. Anyone interested in attending the consultation event or joining the Audit Panel can call the council on (01670) 707831.
