Have a say on county issues

A SERIES of public debates will be held for people to have their say about county council issues.

The sessions will be open to residents to air their views at three area meetings next week.

Any issues and concerns raised will be fed back to the full council at its next meeting.

Council Leader Jeff Reid said: “The services provided by Northumberland County Council impact on every resident and every household in Northumberland.

“We are committed to putting people at the heart of what we do and are keen to understand residents’ views on local issues and services.

“The discussion evenings provide local people with the opportunity to put forward their thoughts and views. We hope that the public will come along and join in the debate.”

The North meeting will take place in Morpeth Town Hall on Monday, the West debate will be at Corbridge First School on Tuesday, and the South East session will be at Choppington Social Welfare Centre on Wednesday.

All of the meetings start at 6pm.
