The Northumberland County Council promises to eliminate potholes by June - how is it in your area?

For 5 years we have been trying to persuade the Local Authority to get serious about potholes, which are the bane of our lives in south and west Northumberland. To be fair they are beginning to do something about it: the County Council leader promised that he would "eliminate potholes by June 2014". However, it is important that any potholes are reported to the Council, your councillors or to my office. We will judge the Council on their actions by the end of June, but please let me know of problems. I am aware that parts of Haltwhistle, South Tynedale, Bellingham, Corbridge and areas to the west of Ponteland are particularly bad but all identification and help gratefully appreciated and it will be passed on. Full story of the Council listening to our claims of a pothole disaster zone here in the south and west and what they are doing about it are set out below:
