NEWS ROUNDUP: Postal voting and Gateshead heroes

NEWS ROUNDUP: Postal voting and Gateshead heroes

 

Northumberland County Council is encouraging people to register for postal voting ahead of the May local elections. Using the postal service could help ensure the safety of many voters. Those who do opt to vote in person must bring their own pen or pencil, and there will be strict safety measures in place. 

 
Gateshead Council are asking people to nominate their community heroes for a Gateshead Award. The awards recognise the contribution of people within the borough who go above and beyond to support their community. Nominations close on 12 March, and you can find out all the information you need at gateshead.gov.uk/gatesheadawards
 
A move to bring an additional 81 new homes to land in Middlesbrough has been backed by councillors. The development would join the already approved plans for 145 homes at Gresham near Union Street. The decision comes as Mayor Andy Preston aims to bring 4,000 new residents to the town centre in the next decade.
