New enforcement officer for council

New enforcement officer for council
15 October 2017


Town council chairman Coun John Collins, left, enforcement officers who will work in Cramlington and council services manager Daryl Wood, right.

Cramlington Town Council is the first local authority at the town and parish level in both Northumberland and the North East to employ its own parking enforcement officer.

These posts are normally funded by larger county or metropolitan councils, but in view of the increasing pressures on the service provided by Northumberland County Council, the town council has agreed to fund a full-time post from its own resources in order to provide a higher level of service in the area.

The enforcement officer, who will work across the town on weekdays and weekends, has powers to issue fines for parking offences, dog fouling and littering. On the spot fines of up to £70 can be imposed.

The town council has taken this step in an effort to combat the growing nuisance to local residents caused by illegal parking, particularly around the town centre. Dog fouling and litter are also major concerns for residents and despite past efforts, these problems still persist.

Coun John Collins, chairman of Cramlington Town Council, said: “Although not everyone will welcome this development, something clearly has to be done. “Every day we receive complaints from residents about nuisance parking, dog fouling and litter and most residents will support this move. The town council has also pushed hard for more parking restrictions in a number of areas, particularly around the town centre and outside schools, and these will be coming into force over the coming months.” He added: “We’re also working with the county council and Manor Walks to provide more parking in the town centre.”

Campaign helping to clean up part of Blyth

From today's News Post Leader @ http://www.newspostleader.co.uk/news...lyth-1-8821118
Campaign helping to clean up part of Blyth
David Sedgwick 24 October 2017


Officers from Blyth Neighbourhood Policing on patrol during the 12 Streets initiative.

A campaign is making good progress to clean up streets in part of Blyth. Northumbria Police and partners in the town are helping to clean up 12 Streets by tackling crime, disorder and even rubbish.

So far during the 28 day operation, which started on October 9, officers have carried out additional patrols to prevent burglary and used speed monitoring equipment to stop and warn several motorists about their driving. The 12 streets includes Wright Street, Beaumont Street, Disraeli Street, Salisbury Street, Gladstone Street, Hambledon Street, Durban Street, Goschen Street, Balfour Street, Maddison Street, Hall Terrace and Hodgson’s Road areas of Cowpen Quay.

Special Constables joined the neighbourhood team to security mark property at a crime prevention stall, also inviting residents to sit down with them and have a Cuppa with a Coppa at the Buffalo Centre to discuss any policing or community issues. The partnership initiative has included removing abandoned furniture and other rubbish which had become a local eyesore, with further action planned after talks with members of the community. Police invited dog section colleagues to join neighbourhood evening patrols of the 12 Streets area of Blyth to target criminal behaviour and motorcycle disorder in the area.

Last Sunday one rider was reported for summons and two other men spoken to and warned about their behaviour. Blyth Neighbourhood Sergeant Jonny Pallace said: “This 12 Streets operation is making a big difference to the area. People have noticed the activity and are pleased to see its positive effects so far. We’ve already spoken to a lot of residents to get their feedback and want to encourage people to stop us when they see us on patrol and let us know how we can continue to support and help them. We’ve taken part in activities to help break down any barriers between officers and local people meeting people of all ages, from attending the over 50s Forum to taking part in the ‘Monday move it ’ fitness session putting children through their paces at Morpeth Road Primary School. “This initiative has made a really positive start in Blyth and we have a lot more activity planned this month, so keep an eye out for our neighbourhood team.”

Local ward councillor Kath Nisbet added: “It’s been a great start to the project, with a range of activities taking place to improve the local area, including rubbish clean-ups. While we’ve already spoken to a lot of people about their concerns, we would always encourage residents to come forward and let us know about their issues, and any ideas they have to help us create long-term solutions.”

More affordable homes being built

More affordable homes being built
29 October 2017 David Sedgwick


Arch Homes is continuing work on affordable homes in Blyth and Cramlington.

Work is continuing to build new affordable homes in two Northumberland towns.

Arch Homes is well under way on construction of 42 properties at sites in Blyth and Cramlington. A total of 14 two-bedroom bungalows, specifically aimed at the over 55s, are being built on the site of the former Newsham First School. The accommodation has been designed to facilitate wheelchair access for those who require it, but will also be suitable for use by occupants of all abilities.

In Nelson Village, Arch is building 28 affordable homes. Work on the haul road was recently completed in readiness for the arrival on site of principal contractor ESH later this month. The development will comprise six two-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, three two-bedroom terraced bungalows, six two-bedroom semi-detached houses, 12 three-bedroom semi-detached houses and one five-bedroom detached house.

Arch chairman Richard Wearmouth said: “Building affordable homes for Northumberland residents is a key aim for the new council administration. “We are committed to making significant investment in such projects and I am delighted to see progress being made on these two further sites.”

John Moran, Arch Homes manager, added: “The range of properties under construction reflects the diverse needs of tenants. We have already received a lot of interest in the bungalows, which started before we’d submitted the scheme for planning. This demonstrates that there is a real need not only for affordable homes but specifically bungalows. I expect the same high level of interest in the family homes at Nelson Village.”

Works starts on Multi-million pound housing project

From the Northumberland County Council web site @ http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/New...ng-projec.aspx
Works starts on Multi-million pound housing project
26 Oct 2017



Work has started on a multi-million pound project to upgrade homes on a Cramlington estate.

Northumberland County Council is investing £2.2m into transforming more than 80 homes at Allerhope. The properties are all “Dorran” style homes, which were a popular post-war style of construction, using concrete panels. Dorran properties often have issues with insulation and the work will help to improve the energy efficiency of the homes.

The council has teamed up with with external wall specialists, Alumasc Facades and Westdale services to complete the work. Steel structures will be added to the concrete panels to strengthen the external walls to ensure they can withstand the weight of new insulation and render. A mix of off-white and brick effect render will then be used on the external wall to modernise the properties, as well as new windows fitted. The first phase of the work started this week, with the project estimated to take two years.

Earlier this year the council picked up a number of national awards for a pilot scheme for the project. At the Energy Efficiency and Healthy Homes Awards, the council received a highly commended in the Landlord of the Year category and commended in the Small Project of the Year (Under £250k) award.

Coun John Riddle, Cabinet member for housing at the council, said: “This is a really innovative project, using specialist technology to upgrade and improve the homes on this estate. The work will not only improve the energy efficiency of the property, and help to reduce the risk of fuel poverty for tenants, but will also improve the general appearance of the area. Our tenant, whose home was part of the pilot scheme, is extremely happy with the work and has already noticed the benefits with the property feeling warmer and better insulated.”

Work starts on new HQ for pipeline firm
David Sedgwick 17 November 2017

Work has started on a new multi-million pound headquarters for a pipeline company. The state-of-the-art two-storey building will be the new home for Cramlington-based PII Pipeline Solutions, a subsidiary of Baker Hughes, a GE company.

The construction, being led by Stoford Developments, will see a 74,110sq ft office and manufacturing unit comprising double height industrial space with car parking, service yards and landscaping to be built adjacent to the firm’s existing base. Work will see the demolition of existing buildings to pave the way for the new unit, which is being constructed by Bowmer & Kirkland and forward funded by LXI Reit plc.

PII Pipeline Solutions’ regional manager Kevin Johnson said: “This new state-of-the-art facility positions us to continue developing new technology and deliver safe and quality services to our customers.”

Andy Kinnear, construction director at Bowmer & Kirkland, said: “We are both excited and delighted to have been awarded this high profile contract and look forward to successfully delivering this new facility for PII on behalf of Stoford Developments.”

Simon Lee, partner of LXi REIT Advisors Limited, said: “With a lease term certain of 20 years to the strong covenant of GE UK Group, this forward funded investment provides a secure, long term and RPI inflation-linked income for the company, with an attractive initial yield. “BHGE’s commitment to the location is demonstrated by the extensive fit-out works it is funding and the fact that it has been based at this site for over 30 years.”

Affordable housing boost for Seaton Burn and Dudley
23 March 2017



WORK has started on the construction of six new bungalows at Seaton Burn, in a further boost to North Tyneside Council’s affordable housing programme.

North Tyneside’s Elected Mayor, Norma Redfearn, met up with representatives of Kier North Tyneside to celebrate the start of work on Chapel Street, where six two-bedroom bungalows are now under construction. The £800,000 scheme will offer homes for affordable rent and revitalise an empty plot of land once occupied by Chapelville Court sheltered accommodation. Kier North Tyneside will then begin work on a further 20 affordable homes in June on the former Dudley & Weetslade Social Club site, in nearby Dudley, representing a £2.4m investment in the village.

The two developments, due for completion in the summer of 2017 and 2018 respectively, are being delivered as part of North Tyneside Council’s affordable homes programme, which will see 3,000 new homes built throughout the borough by 2022.

Elected Mayor, Norma Redfearn, said: “Providing good quality homes at a price that people can afford is a key priority for this council, as we strive to achieve our housing supply target of 3,000 new affordable homes over 10 years. It is vital to the identity of our communities that local people have the opportunity to continue living in the place they call home, and these fantastic new properties will enable them to do just that. I am delighted to see work starting at Seaton Burn and the progress being made by our partners Kier North Tyneside towards the start of the development at Dudley. These are high quality schemes which will bring much-needed homes to North Tyneside and make the best possible use of two disused sites.”

Kier regional director, Mike Furze, said: “We are proud to be delivering new homes at Seaton Burn and helping to provide the affordable housing the local community needs now and in the future. We’re looking forward to bringing an empty plot back to life, and continuing our work with North Tyneside Council to improve the quality of housing for residents across the borough.”

Affordable housing boost in North Tyneside
David Sedgwick 19 November 2017


Kier's Kevin Monk and Mike Furze meet new tenants, Joe and Carol Salkeld, along with Trevor Pringle, North Tyneside Council, and Kevin Young, Kier.

New affordable housing has been built in North Tyneside.

North Tyneside Council has completed six two-bedroom bungalows on the site of the former Chapelville sheltered accommodation in Seaton Burn. The £800,000 development, led by Kier North Tyneside on behalf of the council, took seven months to complete. Each property is wheelchair accessible and has a level access shower, as well as a sprinkler system courtesy of Tyne & Wear Fire and Rescue Service.

Joe and Carol Salkeld, who have just moved from nearby Killingworth. Carol said: “We’re just getting moved in but we love the new property already. It’s spacious and has a large garden, and the location is lovely and quiet as well. It’s really important to keep building affordable homes. We couldn’t be happier.”

The development is a further boost to the council’s affordable housing programme, which will see 3,000 new homes built by 2022.

Mayor Norma Redfearn said: “This is a fantastic development of accessible, affordable homes to rent in a great location in the village. I am certain they will make a big difference to the lives of local people and the community as a whole.”

Football club nets funding boost

From the Northumberland County Council web site @ http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/New...ing-boost.aspx
Football club nets funding boost
29 Nov 2017



Cramlington Town Football Club has scored a funding boost from the County Council towards improving its pitches.

The council’s Cabinet approved a retrospective capital grant award of £15,000 from the s106 Cramlington Development fund, which was carried forward from Blyth Valley Borough Council at the time of Local Government Review. It was built up from developers contributions from new housing built in Cramlington over a 20-30 year period and included developer contributions towards the provision or improvement of sport and play facilities in the local area.

The funding was used - alongside significant Sport England and Football Foundation support secured directly by the club - for extensive ground levelling and new drainage at East Hartford, creating five pitches. The increase and improvement will benefit over 400 members at the club and has meant the site can be opened to the wider community. Earlier this year the club received a further £35,000 from the s106 fund to refurbish and weatherproof its facilities and resurface the carpark.

Councillor Barry Flux, Ward Councillor and Deputy Business Chair, said: “It’s great to be able to support the development of local sports facilities which are extremely well used by the community. Work is ongoing at the club on a number of improvements which hopefully will inspire future generations of football enthusiasts.”

Stephen Sams, Chair of Cramlington Town FC, said: “The club is delighted to receive the funding from the council and would like to thank them for their support. It will allow us to establish our own base in the town, expand team development , increasing opportunities for children and young people to participate in football and encourage and promote the facilities within the local community.”

Local beers on offer at new micropub
6 December 2017



A new micropub has opened its doors in Bedlington, with locally-brewed beers and traditional ciders on offer.

Box Wood Tap is the latest venture from Andrea Johnson, who also runs the award-winning pub The Office in Morpeth and the Fox’s Den in Felton. She is pictured with her son, Ryan Haigh.

Beers from Rigg & Furrow in Acklington, Two By Two in Wallsend and Cullercoats Brewery will be among the regulars in the cosy, converted shop unit on Front Street West.

Both The Office and Fox’s Den feature in the 2017 Good Beer Guide published by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). The Office is the current CAMRA North East Pub of the Year.

Andrea said: “The first few nights have been brilliant. “I can’t thank enough those that have helped make this happen, particularly my son, Ryan.”

Blyth businesses called on to set up group to improve the town's economy

Business people in a Northumberland town are hoping to set up a group that they hope will develop the local economy. The Blyth Development Trust wants to set up a Business Improvement District (BID), which collect levies from businesses to use on economic growth schemes.

A number of successful BIDs have been set up in the North East in recent years, with the NE1 group in Newcastle city centre responsible for initiatives like the Alive After Five free parking scheme and Newcastle restaurant week. But a BID scheme in Hexham has proved more controversial, with its entire board recently announcing its resignation over what was said to be a lack of support.

The bid to set up a BID in Blyth aims to tackle the town’s poor image, set up more public events and investigate ways to provide a focal point in the town centre such as a public square. The BID steering group is chaired by local business owner, Lesley Davie, who is a trustee of the Blyth Development Trust, while Chris Kolek has been appointed as project manager.

Ms Davie said: “I started my hairdressing business in Blyth at the age of just 21. Over the 15 years since opening my salon I have seen many changes in the town. It saddens me greatly that so many people have lost faith in Blyth, and especially in the town centre. Having been born and brought up in the area, I know the people of Blyth to be loyal, tough and resilient. After all it is their support which has enabled me to grow a successful business, something for which I am extremely grateful. I truly believe that the town centre of Blyth can be reinvigorated, but to do this we, as a business community, must all pull together. I see the creation of a Business Improvement District (BID) not only as a positive way for local businesses to contribute to improvements, but also for business to take control in bringing Blyth back into the spotlight. All the evidence shows that other towns with similar problems have achieved great things by establishing a BID. In making sure that the funds raised are used to develop initiatives that suit Blyth, we have a fantastic opportunity to play our part in helping to kick start growth and attract a new generation of shoppers and visitors to the town. In order for this to happen we need your support and your ideas. Only by working as a team can we make Blyth better”.

We already have a public square, it's just under-used since the council tore it up and spent money rebuilding it and the market traders they forced out haven't been back since. We have quite a few buildings going largely to waste here. I'm not sure if the floors above Poundstretcher's are still being turned into flats. But there's still empty space above the old post office, Northumbria House has two floors going unused, etc. This could be used for housing just to get more people into the town centre and give it some more life. It would be nice to have a more welcoming bus station as well. Urban sprawl has really hurt Blyth when it really needed to be more compact and focus on the centre rather than having people spread far and wide. If the Port had been moved to the old power station site and the riverside used for high housing as well as other sites around the centre we could probably drastically decrease the town's footprint. And a bridge over to Cambois would make us very accessible to those people living there.
