“Safety at Swinhoe” petition

John Rhind has been working indefatigably to persuade all concerned that a roundabout should be the preferred option at the infamous Swinhoe Crossroads to slow traffic and aid all-round visibility. Backed up by 1000+ signatories, multiple press releases and FOI requests, John will have five minutes to address the assembled councillors and persuade them to act in the interests of the whole community. Be there to support him, if you can.

Northumberland Gazette (10/05/18) on page 5 under the headline - Coastal plan going out to referendum - Andy Brown of Beadnell Under Threat is quoted as saying:

"The crucial elements of our Neighbourhood Plan, that will preserve the integrity of our coastal communities, are the designated Settlement Boundaries and Policy 14 to ensure permanent occupancy of all new-builds. A "Yes" vote in the Referendum would not only effect a positive outcome to planning regulations but also demonstrate a united front against the march of the developers."

The leading article of the same  Gazette also deals with "The scourge of second homes along the coastline"

and on page 5 the theme continues with "Village survey reveals extent of holiday lets".


The North Northumberland Coast Neighbourhood Plan (NNCNP)  is our best defence until 2032, so persuade everyone you know in all three communities to vote "YES"

For reference to historic s106 permanent occupancy restriction read Northumberland Gazette (5 Jan 2017): "Permanent homes restriction: Example for the future or exercise in futility?"
