Development of new high school campus should be top priority. Also the bus station is very run down & cold reflects badly on Alnwick. Youth centre needed to combat youth boredom & vandalism. Market place needs new stalls & rents for stalls & shops need to be more reasonable to attract new business & help existing businesses during these dire economic times.


No more cafes + hairdressers pleas, we need more variety. Increase local train services please (increase stoppage at Berwick + Morpeth + Alnmouth) Sita waste facility is very good + there’s good placement of bottle banks around the town.


Bringing sustainable jobs to the area should be the first priority. Public transport needs to be improved, particularly as bus times so that they tie in with job start and end times. Extra car parking provisions need to be made in or near the centre of town to serve people working in the town and so tourists visiting the town can park. No car parking spaces means that tourists don't stop.


Bus doesn’t meet train anymore!
