New film promotes county council’s plans
01 June 2016
Across Northumberland the council has identified opportunities to generate over £33million in capital income, contribute significantly to economic growth and regeneration and make annual savings in running costs of £3.4million by selling off its surplus buildings and ensuring all its remaining properties are fit for the 21st Century.
The move to locate facilities together under one roof wherever possible in towns will make it easier for residents to access key frontline services in their local area.
Grant Davey, Leader of Northumberland County Council, said: “Making sure everyone has a good understanding of the reasons behind our market towns initiative is vital.
“After all it will be the public who will reap the benefits of services being located together in our market towns in fresh, modern facilities.
“This short film explains the reasons behind the decisions we’ve taken and our future plans – all in the space of two-and-a-half minutes.”
