New Cambois home given the go-ahead by councillors


Bot

A new home at Cambois has been given the go-ahead after councillors rejected the planners' view that the site was in the open countryside.

Plans for the construction of a two-storey house and detached garage, between Berristock and Debdon House, were recommended for refusal at Wednesday night's (March 13) Ashington and Blyth Local Area Council.

But members unanimously backed the scheme, as they did not consider it was in the open countryside, that it was on previously developed brownfield land and that a refusal - saying development was unsuitable in this area - would essentially split Cambois in two.

The ward councillor, Jeff Gobin, and East Bedlington Parish Council had both supported the application as well.

Coun Brian Gallacher said: "If this applicant didn't build his house there, what else is going to go there? You are going to end up with a patch of wasteland."

Coun Grant Davey added: "I would like to see Cambois rebuilt as a very lively village."
