THE Borderlands Place Programme is offering Haltwhistle the opportunity to receive a £3m investment.

Northumberland County Council have released a survey asking for public opinions on how to effectively deal with the investment.

The public consultation commenced on Monday, April 4 and will conclude at midnight on Monday, April 25.

Through the programme, the council intend to target investment in areas that will boost economic activity across Northumberland, to highlight the significance of small rural and coastal towns.

As part of this, Haltwhistle is developing a Town Investment Plan to secure £3m in investment from the Borderlands Programme.

A Board has been set up to collaborate with the council, which includes representatives from Northumberland County Council, Haltwhistle Town Council, Haltwhistle Partnership, Haltwhistle Chamber of Trade, Young and Sweet, Haltwhistle Swimming and Leisure Centre, and Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, Berry Global, Agma, and Kilfrost.

A series of place plans will be developed for both Haltwhistle and Northumberland's other priority towns. Residents, workers, students, and visitors to Haltwhistle are encouraged to submit their views on Haltwhistle's development plans.

The council are asking for people to share their feelings on both the best and worst aspects of the town and what changes people would like to see.
