Northumberland residents and businesses have the opportunity to give their views on where future development should take place in the county.  Northumberland County Council is launching the first public consultation on a new Local Plan for the area that will allow residents to identify general locations for new housing and jobs, and to identify what key issues the plan should address.

This initial consultation is an interactive survey, which allows people to mark which areas they feel are the most appropriate places for housing and employment development.  The online survey can be viewed at or by picking up a paper copy from any library or council customer information centre in Northumberland. This initial consultation will run from Wednesday 28 March until Wednesday 2 May 2018.
