Low Prudhoe Developments

IMG_3593

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).

Promoting local business

Last month Gordon travelled to London with other NCC Councillors and met Guy to help promote#Northumberland business.

They then all met the Prime Minister at no 10, a follow up on that visit will take place soon by some other representatives from NCC & local companies.

Hairy Biker Si King is an ambassador for the scheme, highlighting the importance of knowing the source of our food, right down to the raw ingredients.

This is important for #TynedaleTourism creating / retaining #TynedaleJobs

Prudhoe Tourism

We believe that Prudhoe should be a destination for tourists and are working to raise its profile.

 

We asked Visit Northumberland why Prudhoe did not have a drop down bar on their website.

A reply has been received.

***************************************

Dear Cllr Stewart

Thank you for your enquiry.

The towns shown on our drop down menu appear because of the number of recorded visitors they have had per annum.  We are working very hard to improve the number of visitors to the whole of Northumberland and that includes towns such as Prudhoe.

Although it may not be listed as a town in the drop down, we strive to promote West Northumberland and the wonderful things it has to offer. If there are any significant events happening in your area we’d be grateful if you could help us to encourage businesses to add them to the website to help us bring visitors to the county. This is free of charge and really easy to do, with event organisers being able to add them on the website: www.visitnorthumberland.com/add-event

Equaliteas

What an amazing evening spent with the #Prudhoe guides & #Stocksfield guides as we learned about the fight for equality from the ‘inspirational’ Penny of Emily Inspires

To think how far we as a Country have come in a relatively short time, but still more work to be done.

What a fantastic group of young people & leaders.

Photo taken near the end of the evening – great to see Tracy the PTC mayor and PTC Cllrs taking part (as shown in the photo )

Anti social behaviour

DD8725B9-6A89-4845-89D4-751BFD62DED4

 

 

Friday evening / night -pleased to participate in a multi agency operation which took place in Prudhoe to help raise awareness of anti social behaviour and also tackle it.

(The first of many to be held).

This was in conjunction with Northumbria Police PrudhoeTownCouncil Northumberland Youth Service working in collaboration with Schools from within the area as well as the Community Alcohol Partnerships

Bottles of alcohol were seized from an underage youth in West Wylam.

Warning notices were delivered to several parents regarding their child’s recent behaviour.

Many members of the public mentioned they were delighted that such positive and high profile action was being taken, this included some young people who also felt safer.

Off licences were visited during last night.

We are working with the licensees to reduce proxy sales.

Anti social behaviour levels in #Prudhoe are low compared with many other towns in the area, or elsewhere in the Country but we feel it is right we are tackling this together.

With even greater assistance from the public a lot more can be done.

Please report ALL incidents to the Police.

Do not buy / supply alcohol to under 18yrs.

If you do,it could lead to a conviction for a criminal offence.

Amazing that some parents provide alcohol to their children.

Your actions may have contributed to disorder / damage or even worse crime.

The vast majority of young people in this town are fantastic, and we do not want the lives of any of them to be harmed in anyway by them doing a stupid act whilst under the influence of alcohol.

Let’s all be #ProudOfPrudhoe
