Bid to end parish division

ELECTORAL changes have been proposed for two Northumberland parishes.

Both Meldon and Whalton parish councils have asked for a review to remove their subdivisions into wards to reduce election costs. Changes would come into force for elections in May 2017.

Any comments on the proposals should be submitted in writing to Lesley Bennett, Team Leader (Governance/People), Democratic Services, Northumberland County Council, County Hall, Morpeth, Northumberland, NE61 2EF, or to by September 13.
