Bernicia is part of the Borderlands Place Programme , which will see Northumberland County Council target investment in places that will help boost economic activity across the region.
Recognising the importance of our smaller rural market and coastal towns to the local economy, this programme will provide up to £50 million across the whole Borderlands region.
A series of Place Plans will be developed for both Newbiggin and Northumberland’s other priority towns. Towns will only enter the Place Programme should their Place Plan contain projects eligible for Borderlands investment.
To develop a Town Investment Plan for Newbiggin, it is vital for us to learn more about the town from your perspective.
We encourage you to use this to have your say on developing plans for Newbiggin. We are asking you to share your feelings on the best and worst aspects of the town and the things that you would like to see change. The survey is open from the 7th of February 2022 and closes at midnight on the 20th of February 2022 – please click here to complete the short survey.
