Exercise of Public Rights - Accounts for the Year Ended 31st March 2019

Each year the smaller authority prepares an Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR). The AGAR has been published with this notice (under Audit on this website).  It will not be reviewed by the appointed Auditor, since the smaller authority has cerfified itself exempt from the appointed auditor's review.

Weed Control

Northumberland County Council are making improvements to the way they tackle weeds in towns and villages in Northumberland.

The county has a well-deserved reputation as a green and pleasant place to live and visit and it is important to do all they can to keep it looking its best.

In recent years, most weed spraying treatments on hard landscape areas have been contracted out. However this year, the County Council is employing ten extra staff members across the Local Area Councils to ensure the in house teams have the capacity to undertake the work themselves.
