NORTHUMBERLAND LOCAL PLAN

We've discovered that submitting comments to Northumberland County Council's planning portal is not the easiest thing in the world.

We have produced some guidance on how to submit comments online, by post and by email. You have until Wednesday 13th March to share your views.

Please support our objections to policy REN 2 (Identification of Areas Suitable for Wind Turbines).

All the information is in our latest campaign email.

This week we've been in touch with all Northumberland Parish Councils to let them know we have sent our Representations to Northumberland County Council.

Everyone has until 13th March to have their say on the identification of areas suitable for wind turbine development. Some 66% of the county has been classed as 'suitable'.

We urge you to support the Society in its efforts to protect the County’s landscapes and to make your opinion known on this unsound policy proposal.

All of the details can be found in the link, and on our website:
