Have your say on new Pont plan

RESIDENTS can have their say on plans for Ponteland’s long-term future.

The Town Council is holding a public session on Tuesday to give people the opportunity to discuss its Local Plan face-to-face with councillors.

It outlines the authority’s long-term vision for the area, including a three-stage bypass and extending the Tyne and Wear Metro to Ponteland.

The session will take place in the Memorial Hall, Darras Road, from 7pm.
