Items to be replaced in park area

MEMBERS of Ponteland Town Council have agreed to replace the boardwalk at the Oxbow meadow in Ponteland Park.

The structure was removed because it was deemed to be in a dangerous condition.

Councillors endorsed the replacement at an estimated cost of £1500. The appointment of a contractor was delegated to the Clerk.

They also agreed to replace the damaged picnic bench and a further bench suitable for wheelchair users will be installed on the more level grassed area nearer Darras Road bridge.
