Castlefields

Following many discussions with residents about their concerns regarding vehicles being driven at excessive speed along Castlefields drive we asked a senior officer to look into improving the road safety in the area.

Research has been conducted and a design brief prepared by NCC advisors is expected to be completed by the end of this month, after this is provided consideration will be given for the speed limit in that area will be decreased to 20mph or/ and any other measures they propose.

This research and any measures to be added will be partly funded by Gordon & Ken’s annual members allowance scheme.

We will provide additional information in August 2020.

A reduction in the speed limit etc will make it a less desirable route for drivers cutting through to the bypass etc.

NCC playparks

NCC owned play parks in Prudhoe.

We know that many families really miss the play parks and would like them back open ASAP.

NCC are reviewing the expert guidance.

Gordon & Ken would also like the parks opened especially as the School holidays are coming up very soon.

They have written to a senior officer at NCC asking that they are opened and the advice is complied with as the health of the public must remain paramount.

We are also checking to see if the Contractor has completed the major work on the Riverside play park and it is ready for public use.

The Waterworld play park will remain out of use for a very good reason the contractor will be carrying out major improvements there over the next few weeks.
