  4. Northumberland County Council today confirmed that they will build a stand-alone leisure centre in Berwick, separate to the planned new hospital. Councillor Peter Jackson, Leader of Northumberland County Council said: “The feedback from the people of Berwick is clear - they don’t want a co-located site - and we’re acting on that. “We’re fully committed to making sure Berwick gets the very best, and I have promised that the County Council will build a brand new state of the art leisure facility on the Swan Centre site. We will keep our promise, and continue to listen to our residents through the planning stages.” This announcement replaces previous plans for a joint site. Integrated and coordinated working will proceed where appropriate, but all the services will not be co-located on one site. This followed strong representations by the three Berwick county councillors and the wider community. Following requests by the three local councillors, additional investment is also being considered for a potential extra care development alongside the new hospital. This would support provision of services to vulnerable and older people in Berwick. Peter Jackson added: “After 50 years of inaction in Berwick, there will be £45 million invested in the town – our own investment of £20 million in a brand new state of the art leisure centre, and £25 million has been passed onto the Northumbria Healthcare Trust.”

Many normal collections were made yesterday - although there were some areas, including rural locations, where this is not possible. Some collections were also missed due to unfortunate vehicle breakdown.

These will be kept under review and further guidance provided at the end of the week. We will be prioritising general rubbish bins before recycling bins - due to the nature of the waste they contain.

  20. Bin collections have been severely disrupted by snow and icy conditions across Northumberland and the current weather forecast means that we will be unable to collect any further bins this week. The county council has provided the following guidance to residents whose bin collections have been affected by the extreme winter weather. Many collections were completed on Monday and Tuesday. If you are one of the small number of properties not collected on either of those days, please put your bin out for collection on your next scheduled collection day. Unfortunately we were unable to collect on Wednesday or Thursday, and no further collections will be made this week. If your general rubbish collection was missed on Wednesday 28th February please put this bin out next Wednesday, 7th March, and again on Wednesday 14th March. Your recycling bin will not be emptied and should be put it out for collection on its next scheduled collection day of Wednesday 21st March If your general rubbish collection was missed on Thursday 1st March please put this bin out next Thursday 8th March and again on Thursday 15th March. Your recycling bin will not be emptied and should be put it out for collection on its next scheduled collection day on Thursday 22nd March. The county council apologises for any inconvenience that these arrangements may cause, but it has to prioritise the collection of general rubbish so that residents do not have to wait four weeks for a collection of waste that can become unpleasant. Recycling bins that have been missed this week they should be taken back in, and put out again on your next recycling bin collection day in a fortnight’s time. If you are unable to fit all of your recycling into the bin at that time, crews will take additional items. These must be contained safely in paper carrier bags, cardboard boxes or clear sacks and the waste team is issuing clear plastic sacks to council information points for affected areas. Unfortunately items in black sacks won’t be taken. Unfortunately all Household Waste Recovery Centres across Northumberland have had to close today (2nd March) due to adverse weather conditions. Efforts are being made to open sites tomorrow but please check alerts before making that journey. Check the council website for alerts and opening days and times for each centre - www.northumberland.gov.uk Teams will make every effort to return for any commercial waste collections that have been missed during the adverse weather conditions as soon as possible. For commercial customers who have wheeled bins, the normal policy of collecting only waste that is contained within the wheeled bin will be temporarily relaxed and excess bagged commercial waste left alongside the container will also be removed when the next collection takes place. Refuse collection staff that are unable to safely carry out collections have been redeployed to work alongside staff on snow clearance and gritting duties on main footpath and car parks in town centres, busy urban shopping areas and other important pedestrian links. Further information will be issued through the Council’s ‘Alerts’ channels which are available via the website www.northumberland.gov.uk or: Twitter: @northumberlands Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nccalerts
  21. Progress has continued to be made on the town centre scheme that is designed to regenerate Bedlington in the last few months. Northumberland County Council’s regeneration company Arch is going through a tendering process for contractors to build the scheme having had significant interest from potential retailers. The tendering works are due to conclude soon with the scheme due to come to a board meeting in the near future to get final sign off. Speaking about the scheme Cllr Richard Wearmouth, cabinet member for economic development, said: “Right from the start of the new administration we said that regenerating Bedlington Town Centre would be a significant priority and work has continued through the last few months to realise this. “We have been in regular contact with the local county councillors who have been pushing hard to make sure that we get a scheme that works well for the town. “I look forward in the very near future to giving full details of the scheme that is to be put before the board including the timeline for the works to be undertaken.” Bedlington Central Cllr Russ Wallace added: “The regeneration of our town centre is absolutely crucial to the future of Bedlington. I am therefore absolutely delighted that the development is moving rapidly into the construction phase.” To find out more about the latest progress go HERE

  23. Northumberland County Council has agreed a budget to save £65m over the next four years while making ambitious plans for the future. Councillors approved efficiencies of £8.2m for the coming year, £21.1m in 2019-20, and rising to £65.1m over the term of the Medium Term Financial Plan 2018-2022. Council Leader Peter Jackson said: “We’re pleased to have agreed our budget which allows us to balance our books, and do the right thing for the people we serve. But the hard work starts now. “The next three years will be more challenging than ever, and may have a impact on the way we deliver services. “However, we’re bold and ambitious for the future, and by approving this budget we’ll be much better placed to help support a thriving local economy and deliver value for money for the communities we serve. To protect vital services and significant demand in services, the council has reluctantly decided to a Council Tax rise of 2.99%. While this rise in line with inflation, it equates to 85 pence per household per week for a Band D property. Coun Jackson added: ”We’re still very much ambitious for our future, and for the future for the people of Northumberland, and our capital programme of £588m is the biggest ever delivered in the county. “Over the coming years we pledge to continue investing in Northumberland’s future and making sure we get a fair deal for the whole county - one that works for everyone.”
  24. Northumberland County Council is backing a flagship campaign to get up to half a million people out and about cleaning up their local communities this March. The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with a simple aim: to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and beaches. Litter remains a huge problem across the country, causing harm to the environment and wildlife, with councils in England having to spend over £700 million on street cleaning services every year. Running from 2 to 4 March, and promoted by Keep Britain Tidy, the Great British Spring Clean wants to inspire hundreds of thousands of people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us. Northumberland County Council will be encouraging and supporting groups and individuals who want to ‘do their bit’ to help clear up the litter from streets, parks and beaches. Officers will be on hand to give advice, and essential equipment can be loaned to groups who want to collect litter. Council teams can also arrange to pick up the bagged waste afterwards. An ‘environmental prize’ that supports community clean up activity will be offered by the council to the group which collects the most litter during the Great British Spring Clean weekend, with their prize presented at the annual Love Northumberland awards. Last year’s winners received a Superbin, a large steel litter bin with a storage compartment for volunteers litter picking equipment. Councillor Glen Sanderson, cabinet member for the environment and local services, said: ‘We are justifiably proud of our beautiful county and are determined to keep it that way. “We are delighted to be supporting the Great British Spring Clean and encourage as many groups, individuals and organisations as possible to take part. “We can offer equipment, waste collection and all the advice and guidance that groups might need. Together we can make a real difference and clean up the environment on our doorsteps.” If you would like to loan equipment such as litter pickers, hi-visibility vests, gloves and rubbish bags you should email nicola.wardle@northumberland.gov.uk or phone 01670 622997 by Friday 23rd February.

  25. Two Northumberland firefighters found themselves saving a life outside the county as they made their way to a training course. This morning (February 16), NFRS Firefighters Paul Cameron and Tom Oliver were on their way to an Initial Boat Operators Course on the River Tyne at Newcastle Quayside. En route they came across a crashed car. They then performed CPR on the driver, who it's believed may have suffered a cardiac arrest, until paramedics arrived. Deputy Chief Fire Officer Mark McCarty said: "Paul and Tom acted in the best tradition of the emergency services when they came across this incident and their quick thinking and professionalism helped save the driver's life." Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service firefighters from Colby Court also attended and made the scene safe for the general public and all other road users.
