Northumberland County Council Careers

We listened to you and agreed there was a need to review the Local Development Plan to make sure that it is fully and truly met our future housing and economic needs, whilst respecting
and protecting our beautiful county. Earlier this year, we submitted that plan to Government and the plan is now nearly ready for local examination. We have a new development company, Advance Northumberland, that we work in partnership with to attract investment and deliver high quality developments for residents including Ponteland High School and Leisure Centre, the redevelopment of Bedlington Town Centre, Morpeth Leisure Centre, Portland Park in Ashington, Berwick Leisure Centre, the refurbishment of Blyth Sports Centre, as well as investments in Prudhoe and Amble. Many of these community facilities will be opened within the next 12 -18 months which demonstrates our commitment to delivering a county that works for everyone.

Active Northumberland has been recalibrated to work as a key strategic partner for the council, aiming to deliver the highest quality leisure services with a strong focus on improving the health and wellness across the county. The council now has a robust operating agreement with Active Northumberland, they have strengthened their Board and launched their new transformation strategy which is a positive step forward for the county. We are now leading the way in our arts, culture, heritage and library services with our Great Northumberland programme achieving acclaim from regional, national and worldwide visitors, who enjoy our free cultural programme year after year. We are committed to delivering this programme until 2021 to ensure that Northumberland has a growing richness of arts, culture and heritage activities throughout the year. Our libraries offer is being developed to be one of the best in the country, with our flagship libraries offering a broad range of activities supporting communities and promoting the benefits of literacy and learning for residents of all ages. We have continued to invest in our parks and
green spaces to offer a great low cost day out to residents and visitors alike, with new accessible play areas being delivered at Druridge Bay and Plessey Woods Country Parks, and further investment planned to improve the cafe facilities at both Druridge Bay and Bolam Lake to enhance the visitor experience. We have also progressed with our ambitious project to rejuvenate Hirst Park in Ashington and, with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund and other key stakeholders, this historic park has been returned to its former glory. We are incredibly proud that nine of our formal parks have received the accolade of Green Flag status – confirming they are some of the best parks.
