New Funding for Bedlington!


Recommended Posts

After arguing for the last 2-3 years to get Bedlington included in a Borderland’s deal, nice to finally hear today it has been! Not only that, we are one of the first towns (3) to get to the starting line.
 
What this means is that there will be a Town Team put together, there will be discussion and dialogue with all stake holders, including the Bedlington community, on what we can aim for with regard to further infrastructure improvements into our Town centre redevelopment and elsewhere and there is extra funding coming!
 
Initially we are looking at around £3M but it has already been accepted that this is only the start of the process and can be seen as seed funding.
 
Most of this extra process will be put together by the autumn and we can expect a community consultation around then which will identify the projects we want to see.
 
My thoughts are we embrace this and one of my jobs will be to make sure it happens within the timeframe as has been presented today! Taken alongside the British Volt news last week and the new train line and station we are getting I think for once we can just about see a really bright future for what has been a forgotten area for so long.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
