Plans refused

PLANS to erect a conservatory at a Morpeth property have been refused.

The application for the addition to the home in Mains Place was rejected by Northumberland County Council’s Area Planning Committee North last week.

Coun David Moore described the conservatory as a ‘square block added to the front of a nice little terrace’.

He added: “It doesn’t do anything to enhance the area and it doesn’t bring anything. I see no reason why it should be added.”
