The new administration has created five local area councils which gives local decision making and accountability back to the communities.
This will make a massive saving of money over the next four years.
For some strange reason Prudhoe was linked with areas such as Ponteland and Morpeth so far as local services were concerned.
Now we have linked the services to the area councils boundaries.
i.e Local services will now be dealt with by the team who have been dealing with all other parts of Tynedale.
This took effect from the 1st August 2017.
