Councillors to view sites

Site visits are to be held for two major planning applications in and near Morpeth.

The county council’s north area planning committee agreed to visit land south of The Dell at Fulbeck as part of an application for 39 new homes and associated improvements to Fulbeck Lane.

Members also deferred an application for 35 executive properties for a site at Clifton Caravan Centre in order to carry out a site visit.

This will take place in the next few weeks to enable the bid to be determined at next month’s planning meeting.
