Residents can still have their say on new plans for a major community leisure provision at Morpeth’s high school over the summer holidays.

This follows the unveiling of the proposal for sport and leisure facilities, accessible for all, on King Edward VI School land at Northumberland County Council’s Morpeth Masterplanning update and feedback event in the Town Hall earlier this month.

The school is pleased with the feedback it has received so far and it is asking people living on Cottingwood Lane and side streets off Cottingwood Lane for their input.

If successful, there would be a new indoor sports hall, changing facilities, meeting spaces, car parking, floodlit synthetic turf playing surfaces, playing fields and tennis courts at KEVI – part of The Three Rivers Learning Trust.

The proposed new site entrance would link with the Morpeth Northern Bypass.

Simon Taylor, CEO of The Three Rivers Learning Trust, said: “We’ve received significant support from the public, politicians and other sports organisations regarding our plans so far and are very hopeful we can develop a funded project that provides all we asked for and more, including alleviating the issues surrounding Cottingwood Lane.

“We would like to work with residents in the Cottingwood Lane area and the rest of Morpeth to ensure our plans offer the best option for the whole community.

“Please email us – kevi@the3rivers.net – to give us your views or for more details.”
