A moving story.


Remember this ?

A new light was placed in the centre of a footpath (in fairness where the old one was)

After months of requests \ reminders and more the lamp has been moved to the side allowing for easier access.

Who would think it would be so much hassle !!

No wonder Gordon has the odd grey hair now.

Eastwoods Park

Eastwoods Park was once a beautiful & well used park that unfortunately had been neglected for so long.

This park is for everyone who lives in works or visits #Prudhoe

Our aims include improving leisure and sporting opportunities throughout the town.

Increasing #TynedaleTourism and retaining / Creating #TynedaleJobs

Giving people great reasons to be #ProudOfPrudhoe

A lot of work has already taken place to improve the park and more is online to be done.

This is being carried out by many groups who are working closely together.

NCC, PTC, the energetic Friends of Prudhoe Woods and the recently formed and enthusiastic Friends of Eastwoods Park

Lots to be done – but huge improvements have already taken place.

The FOPW team have recently cut back overgrown trees and this has created a far more welcoming feel about the area.

We will announce some further details of short term plans to put the fantastic park to better use.

These changes don’t just happen people have to have ideas, put a lot of time & effort in and probably fundraise.

We are getting there!

Street lighting programme

Street lighting modernisation programme.

We are in regular contact with the contractors and have received an update today.

Errington Place lights – three columns have to be retrofit with new lanterns, it is anticipated that this will be completed later this momth.

Hillcrest – a lamp was installed and had to be removed,due to connectivity issues.
A nearby light will now be fitted with a twin arm to ensure sufficient light coverage is maintained.

Coldwell rd- an old lamp remains in place due to connection issues, this should be removed in a couple of weeks and the new light connected.

Adderlane Road / coldwell rd – this will be updated in the near future.

Moor Rd opposite Moor Grange – light in the footpath, the original light was in the same position.
We are in discussions with NCC re this as clearly the footfall in that area has changed greatly.

The new lights being installed in Moor Road are not part of this programme.

A few old lights remain on telegraph poles throughout the town, the contractor is aware and will be replacing them in the coming months.

The lights are located to provide a calculated amount of coverage of public roads / footpath i.e a maximum / minimum amount.


Low Prudhoe Developments


We maintain regular contact with Northumberland Estates.

The latest information provided today is as follows-

The exploratory drilling has been completed and no complications have been discovered that would cause major concerns in relation to building on the land.

Serious Interest has been shown by a supermarket, and limited interest from other retailers.

This is consistent with other areas throughout the Country..

Therefore Northumberland Estates will continue to seek other retailers commitments  before any development can be progressed. (Full planning will have to be applied for and permission granted before any development starts).
