Newbiggin Borderlands Place Programme Consultation

Closed 20 Feb 2022

Opened 7 Feb 2022


Through the Borderlands Place Programme, Northumberland County Council intend to 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 and town centres. Towns will only enter the Place Programme should their Place Plan contain projects eligible for Borderlands investment.

Why your views matter

To develop a Town Investment Plan for Newbiggin, it is vital for us to learn more about the town from your perspective. We have launched a new survey and if you live, work, study, visit, or run a business in the town 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 February 2022 and closes at midnight on the 20th February 2022.

What happens next

We will feed back the results to you through the Northumberland County Council website. A destination page has been created for Newbiggin and can be found here.
