Sitting pretty

JUST under half of the public seats in and around Ponteland will be replaced.

Out of the 39 in the area, not including those in Ponteland Park as they are looked at separately, 18 will be taken out after Ponteland Town councillors approved a recommendation by its environment working party.

The new seats, which will be installed in phases, will be made of recycled plastic. They will last longer than the old ones and should require less maintenance.
