Milkwell Development Starting

Milkwell Development Starting

The Milkwell development of 187 houses on land between Corbridge Middle School and Milkwell Lane will be starting very soon. Many people in Corbridge did not support the planning application for this development when it came forward in 2016. Although this was before I became a councillor, I too had significant objections but it was granted and we have to make the best of it.

There will be some community benefits including a new car park and improved sports facilities for the middle school and much-needed affordable housing provision.

I will continue working closely with Northumberland County Council, Corbridge Parish Council and the developers to ensure that this development is implemented safely and that we maximise the benefits and minimise the disruption. I’m in regular contact with the developers, the Council’s Planning, Highways and Health and Safety teams and with the School.

If you have any concerns arising out of the development please don’t hesitate to contact me.
