Developer backs campaigns

THE developer behind Morpeth’s new shopping centre is giving its support to two flood defence campaigns.

Dransfield Properties, which revamped Sanderson Arcade, is calling on the Environment Agency’s national board to re-think its decision.

Managing Director Mark Dransfield said Dransfield Properties and Sanderson Arcade are giving their full support to the Morpeth Herald’s petition and to the Morpeth Flood Action Group’s letter-writing campaign, luanched in a bid put the scheme back on the list.

“This is something that affects everyone living and working in Morpeth and it is important that those people making the decisions understand how strongly the community feels.”
