The Parish Council will put forward three proposals for the Local Transport Plan to be developed by Northumberland County Council. Comments are welcome on the following together with new suggestions by Friday 27th September..


1 “Gated” entrance to the village

2 A 20 mph speed limit through the village

3 Pedestrian Crossing near to the Wellington

4 Footpath, including safe cycle route, along the road to the west of the village to join up with the one at Farnley & on to Corbridge

5 Changes to road layout on A68 at junction with roads to Broomley & Healey i.e. at the top of the hill

6 Safe Cycle route to Stocksfield

7 Resurfacing the footpath at the west end of village between the row of cottages containing the Old Post Office and Riding Grange

8 Repair of the footpath from the Slaley Road grid ref. 005615 to the “Blue Bridge” and ford on the March Burn

  1. Agree whole heartedly with 3,4 and 8 we try to maintain a healthy lifestyle through walking regularly around and about the village, all these suggestions make it much safer to do so. Children’s safety when getting to and from public transport in the winter months would be improved by the suggestions.
