My apologies for not being in touch for a while regarding progress with the surface water management proposals in the Dene Garth vicinity.
I can advise that Northumberland County Council and Northumbrian Water continue to work with the landowner to agree a mutually acceptable arrangement on the farmland north of Dean Garth.
Currently the design team are working on revising the proposal and we hope to have drawings for review in the new year. Undertaking earth works during the winter period in agricultural land carries the risk of long term damage to the soil therefore it is our intention to commence construction works in the Spring when ground conditions are more suitable.
We will keep you informed of progress and be back in touch when the start date is agree.
Have a great Christmas
