    In June, County will consult the public on proposed amendments to their Local Plan for Northumberland for the period to 2031, referred to as their "Core Strategy". The draft amendments went to a County Scrutiny Committee on 24th May and then to Cabinet on 31st May and are available on the County website. It is easy to miss an amendment that has a significant impact on the Morpeth Neighbourhood Plan and residents of Lancaster Park in particular.

    Liberal Democrats have always taken the view that membership of the EU is in the best interests of the UK. That is not to say the EU is perfect but it has delivered decades of peace and prosperity and created the world's largest ever trading area and the opportunity to live, work and retire across the continent. In particular the north east has benefited enormously from our membership of the EU. Please join us by voting IN on 23rd June to ensure the long term prosperity and security of our country.
