Parish out to set bounds wider still and wider

PEGSWOOD Parish Council is asking for residents’ views on a proposed change to its boundary with Ashington Town Council’s patch.

The change would mean Pegswood fire station, Pegswood Cemetery and the Robin of Pegswood sculpture would all fall fully within the parish’s limits.

Parish councillors have asked Northumberland County Council to carry out a community governance review of the proposal.

Any comments should be submitted in writing to: Lesley Bennett, team leader (governance /people), Democratic Services, Northumberland County Council, County Hall, Morpeth, NE61 2EF, or via e-mail to by Friday, August 19.
