COUNTY HALL: Move will be welcomed

In response to the letter from Coun Peter Jackson, (News Post Leader, March 31), I will welcome the Northumberland County Council headquarters move to Ashington.

As for the new road system not being included in the cost of the figures, the new road was happening regardless of the council moving or not, so would not apply.

And as for the car park not being big enough, perhaps if the authorities get their finger out and open the rail network that’s been in the pipeline since 1963, most workers can travel by rail.

Ashington needs regeneration and I believe this will happen.
