Residents of Amble were able to drop in and see the detailed plans for the proposed supermarket development and leave comments with Amble Town Council. These comments will help form the Council’s response to the Planning Committee at County Hall.
The plans were on display in the Trinity Methodist Church Hall, Percy Street, Amble between 2.00pm and 6.00pm on Wednesday 26th January.
The plans go under the snappy title of: Reserved matter (A/2010/0522): construction of retail supermarket-consideration of appearance and scale (outline reference A/2008/0002) for the land North of Queen Street and adjacent to the Gut and the Braid.
The Town Council will formulate their response to the proposed development at their Planning Committee meeting, which will also be held in the Trinity Methodist Church Hall on Tuesday 1st February at 6.30pm. Members of the public were able to speak at this meeting.

write to the Town Council: Town Council Office, The Quayside, Amble, Morpeth NE65 OAP; Telephone: 01665 714695
or leave a comment in the comments box below.
