Plea for parking

A PLEA has been made for a report into parking charges in the county.

At a meeting of Northumberland County Council last week, Conservative Group Leader Peter Jackson asked why the authority’s administration was ‘baffling’ residents with its ‘ill-thought-out’ parking ideas.

He said: “The feedback from residents in Berwick, Alnwick, Morpeth and Hexham is one of confusion over the Liberal Democrat administration’s plans. When will the actual detail of the car parking proposals become available?”

Council Executive Member for Environment and Infrastructure Isabel Hunter said that a working group is waiting for information to come back.
