New local plan

New Local Plan approved for public consultation

The plan includes policies and proposals aimed at creating up to 15,000 new jobs in the county by 2036.

Through the plan we want to make Northumberland an even greater place to live, work and visit!

17,700 new homes are proposed over the plan period as opposed to 24,000 previously. It will ask for a minimum of 20% of all new homes to be affordable and make provision for accommodation with support for older people and vulnerable adults, for example in ‘extra care’ accommodation.

Preserving the green belt.
