Core Strategy Consultation 11 Nov – 23 Dec 2016




NCC has announced a consultation on further major modifications to the Northumberland Local Plan Core Strategy.

The consultation starts on 11 November and runs until 23 December 2016.  Comments must be received by 4pm on the 23 December.


This further additional stage is necessary as the County Council is supportive of a ‘Garden Village’ at Dissington as well as an item involving Morpeth.


Comments are being invited only on the proposed further major modifications in the consultation document, not on previous documents.  The purpose of the consultation is to obtain views on the ‘soundness’ of the proposed further major modifications.
