Newcastle Council calls time on homes protest
“FAMILIES fighting plans for thousands of new homes have been told their chance to have their voice heard is over.
“Newcastle Council has said it cannot afford to delay its local plan any further despite ongoing concern from hundreds of residents. The council will now publish its final plan setting out where more than 20,000 new homes will be built over the next two decades after two years of debate. It follows a lengthy battle with hundreds of groups who are opposed to the plans which include building on the city’s countryside boundaries.”
