Nic was first elected to the Borough Council in the aftermath of the catastrophic failure of the last Castle Morpeth Local Plan.
This time round, he is at the heart of the Council’s preparation of its new Local Development Framework (LDF).
The LDF is a 20 year plan setting out where housing and industrial developments are going to be, mapping out the new Green Belt around Morpeth and defining policies to protect the landscape and wildlife.
It’s probably the most influential policy the Borough Council is responsible for.
So, we’ll certainly need one or two Greens on the Council to make sure it comes out right this time.
