More than 120 residents have turned out to discuss plans for a Morpeth housing and commercial development.

The Morpeth North Residents’ Action Group (MNRAG) organised a public meeting at All Saints First School to discuss an application by the Mitford Estate to build hundreds of homes, a hotel, roadside services and parkland to the west of Lancaster Park.

The group says there is “universal condemnation” among residents of the scheme, and it has hired a planning consultant to help fight the application.
