Residents must have a say in Northumberland Road scheme

December 7, 2009 4:30 PM

Lib Dem parliamentary spokesman for Newcastle East Greg Stone has responded to enquiries from residents of Northumberland Road in the city centre with regard to proposals to introduce a pedestrianised zone to complement the pedestrian route across the University of Northumbria campus.

Greg said "I am aware that a recent public meeting raised a number of practical considerations about access for residents of Brady & Martin Court and flats on Northumberland Road. Although I am not opposed to the principle of improving the public realm in this area to enhance the cross-campus pedestrian routes and the new swimming pool, it is important that the needs of the residents in this part of the city centre are not forgotten. I understand the council is seeking to address their concerns and a further meeting for residents and St James Church users is planned shortly."
