Berwick Town Council is taking the lead in creating a Neighbourhood Plan and will consult with residents and businesses to help determine the future look of Berwick, Spittal & Tweedmouth.
Neighbourhood plans allow local people to shape decisions about how land is used. Where do we need houses, schools, parks and places to work? It is not about money, but if done well our plan will attract investment and make our town a better place to live in. The Neighbourhood Plan policies will be used by Northumberland County Council, together with their Core Strategy, as a basis for deciding planning applications.
