Storm Arwen Public Meetings in Ponteland and Bellingham

I want to thank everyone for coming to the Storm Arwen Public Meetings in Ponteland and Bellingham. 

The meetings were attended by Northern Powergrid, Northumbrian Water, Northumberland County Council, Forestry England (Bellingham) and the NFU (Bellingham).

Both meetings were well attended by local residents, which ensured that plenty of questions were asked of all the stakeholders. 

I will be writing a report based on the information gathered from these meetings and correspondence received from constituents during the crisis that followed Storm Arwen in late November. This will be sent to Ofgem for their consideration as part of their Review which reports in the Spring.

I am aware there were technical problems with the Ponteland live stream. If you weren't able to watch either meeting,  you can watch them now on my YouTube channel in your own time by clicking HERE.

I am holding two further meetings: 

27th January 18:00 – 20:00, Hexham Mart

28th January 19:00 – 21:00, Allendale Town Hall

If you would like to attend either of these meetings, please sign up by clicking HERE
